HyperVisor Code Integrity Readiness Test fails for Early Launch AntiMalware drivers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I can *not* pass above test for my ELAM driver, because Windows unloads ELAM drivers *before* the statistics can be collected by the test. The Driver Verifier output then looks like this:

       .........

        [X] 0x02000000 Code integrity checks.

      Internal Flags:
        [X] 0x00001000 Additional debug information.
        [X] Indicates flag is enabled.

      Driver Verification List

        MODULE: gdelam.sys (load: 1 / unload: 1)

    I was able to work around this issue by removing "unload" support for my driver, but this is not a good idea because "Windows" wants ELAM Drivers to be unloaded after their work is done. Finally quality gets worse just for passing a quality test.
