Help! What do I do next? SHA-1 versus SHA-2 within the same driver *.CAT approval submission. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    My submission is failure and the error log states:....

    We found that your submission contained binaries embedded with a SHA-256 signature.  However, you requested that your submission be signed such that it is compatible with Operating Systems which require a SHA-1 catalog. Please remove the SHA-2 signatures from your binaries, or remove the SHA-1 target operating systems (Windows 7 and below) and resubmit.

    The OSs I run the WHQL certification tests are Windows 7 (x32/x64), Win 8.1 (x32/x64), 2008 Server, 2012 R2 Server, 2016 Server, Win 10 (x32/x64), and 2019 Server.  All servers OSs are installed with GUI and DataCenter version.

    In my environment I use:

    HCK to test Win7, Win8.1, 2008 Server, and 2012 Server.
    HLK 1803 to test 2016 Server
    HLK 1809 for Win 10 and 2019 Server.

    Then i use HLK 1809 to bundle all of the OSs test packages along with my Printer driver and any supplementary forms to create a single package for approval submission.

    I cannot install the HLK 1809 client on 2016 Server since it says it's not compatible so I'm stuck with having to use HLK 1803.

    I have never encountered this error before and only appeared after we started using HLK 1809, Windows 10 R5, and 2019 Server.

    Please assist.  I'm not sure what to do now since we need Microsoft signed *cat files for the above OSs in our Printer Drivers.

    Thank you.
