PrimFilm 1800u slide and film scanner

Since Windows 8 my PrimFilm 1800u slide and film scanner will not work. Apparently the PrimFilm driver is not certified by Microsoft and neither PrimFilm nor Microsoft care. I did finally find a workaround fortunately.

 I followed the instructions on the youtube video named "How to install unsigned drivers on Windows 10 - By TotallydubbedHD". ( I used the old driver "SF_Eng_1.3".
I followed my handwritten instructions below which are real rough -

Windows key + I
Get charms bar.
left click on power
   shift - reset
Get Troublelshoot screen
   startup settings
  Press 7
Go to device Manager
       find scanner
      double click
       right click
        find driver
       Get red message not digitally assigned

After this Windows 10 worked fine with the scanner. It has been a long time.
