Rocksmith USB cable and Windows PC - how to make it work ?
I have tried plugging the Rocksmith USB cable into my Win7-64 PC which is "supposed" to work. Unfortunately I see this error message instead. Any ideas ? Error code of the driver is a very generic "cannot start"
Hmmm... I haven't had any issues just pluging my cable in and it just automatically being recognized. I do find it interesting that it is naming the device "hocksmit."
Edit: I should have mentioned that I also run Win7 64-bit. At home I have the Home Professional version and at work it's Win7 Enterprise. I haven't ever plugged the cable in to my work PC, but have no reason to think it wouldn't work for either edition. Maybe something is bad with the cable?
I have the same problem. To make it work I just skip installing the driver (because it always fails) and keep plugging/unplugging until it works. Usually it takes between 3 and 10 attempts. It never worked on the first try for me.
To see if it worked, before going into the game I open the "Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers" screen and wait around 20 seconds, if it fails it will show the warning over the Icon of the cable. If it fails I disconnect and wait few seconds and then connect again, if it works there will be a new entry in "Sound > Recording Devices", for me it's called USB microphone or something like that.
