W10 - Nitrokey Storage no smartcard


When using the Nitrokey on my Work laptop (W10) I get the smartcard reader detected as

  • Microsoft USBCCID Smartcard Reader
    but the smart-card either shows unknown smartcard (with no driver) or like it shows now, I don’t see any smartcard at all in my device manager.

As such, the GPA doens’t detect any smart-card neither.
Any help would be appreciated.

See my answer here: W10 Unknown Smartcard

GPA is independent of the unknown Windows smart card driver. Do you have OpenSC installed perhaps? It might interfere with GPA/GnuPG. Does GnuPG detect the Nitrokey (execute “gpg --card-status” in a command prompt)?
