Posted on 2009-12-17

I try to sign a driver for a 64bit Vista OS. But I cannot successfull install the driver. Vista allways say that the driver may not work correct. I signed with a verisign digital id.

Is there a debugging tool available to check the signed driver? Like if there is something that is incorrect?

    Hang on.... so, you're the developer, and you've created a 64-bit driver, and you're having trouble applying a digital signature to the final compiled output?
    ....or are you trying to apply a digital signature to somebody else's driver?
    BTW:  There is a way to disable driver signing for 64-bit Vista.... it's not recommended, but it can be done...
    Use gpedit.msc and navigate to:

    User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Driver Installation and enable the "Code signing for drivers" and then choose "Ignore".
