Has anyone managed to solve this problem? I’m getting the same error message
“Please run SanDisk Secure Access from a SanDisk External Device”
no matter which USB port I try, whenever I try to run “RunSanDiskSecureAccess-Win.exe” from the three new 16GB Sandisk Cruzer USB keys I purchased. The error message persists no matter if I’m trying the front or back or side USB port, USB2 or USB3, or on the laptop (Windows Vista) or two desktops (Windows 7). I’ve tried deleting the original exe and downloading it from this page on the SanDisk website:
but when I save that exe to the USB key and then try to run the exe from the USB key, I get the same error message. This happens on all three USB keys. I’ve also tried running the exe file as an Administrator (although I’m logged into an Admin account on both Vista and the two Win7 machines) to see if that might solve the problem, but it hasn’t.
Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I’ve been reviewing the many other threads on this issue, but noone has yet posted a solution.
Also, this is the MD5 hash of the file I downloaded from the SanDisk page linked above (SanDisk doesn’t provide an MD5 to check it against, but in case anyone wants to match it against the MD5 of their versions of “RunSanDiskSecureAccess-Win.exe” this is what I got:
Any how, any help solving this issue would be greatly appreciated, otherwise I’ll have to return these SanDisk drives back to the store and try a different brand.
