Procedure for "Software Device" Driver? RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the process for submitting a driver to Dashboard for official signature when this driver is not tied to a specific piece of hardware? Are there any special requirements for such a driver?

  • If this is a PnP driver with an INF file, then the procedure is exactly the same as for hardware drivers.  Are you looking for the full WHQL signature, or just the attestation signature?  If you want the full WHQL signature, then you'll need to run the HCK or HLK tests and submit the test logs. If you just want the attestation signature, then you just submit your package, following the guidelines to create and sign a cabinet file.

  • Is this a pnp driver? Or a legacy style driver?
