Freedrum Dongle not recognized

Hello there,

after installing sensorware, I plug in the usb dongle, which pops up under 'Other devices' in Windows 10. After a few seconds, it reads 'Driver error'.
When I turn on the sensors, they do not show up in the devices list. Nor when blinking blue, nor when constantly lighting yellow.

I do see BomeMIDI:Freedrum (!) in the Other devices list.

I already tried reinstalling Sensorware, to no avail

I could not install Music Maker from DVD, so I went online installed version from the website.

I'd appreciate any help!

The issues with Freedrum and Sensorware should be taken up with the makers/developers.
