V4 and V3 Printing driver ranking RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a v3 driver with FeatureScore=x80 and a v4 driver without defining the FeatureScore (which means, FeatureScore=FF). We expected that our v3 driver would rank better than the v4 driver. However, in some cases, v4 driver gets installed instead of the v3 driver.

    - If the v4 driver has a newer date than the v3 driver, v4 driver gets installed.

    - If the v4 driver is self signed and has a newer date than a WHQL'ed v3 driver, v4 driver gets installed.

    Is there a way we can give preference to the v3 driver over a v4 driver in windows 8/8.1?

    Thanks and regards,


    Roger
