Hello,

I try to install unsigned Drivers (one inf and one sys) with wise.
So I created a new feature, put the .inf in, edited the drivers-Tab under the Properties of the inf-file, build the Package and tried to install it. But the installation fails cause the driver is unsingned.
Can I install unsigned Driver with wise? And, when yes, how?

Regards

Daniel

I think both I and EdT suggested in the Symantec Connect query that you posted that you search AppDeploy for your answer, rather than simply posting a question. A search for 'DifxApp' or even 'unsigned' will provide you with more than enough information.

BTW, Wise is irrelevant in this: the problem would be the same irrespective of the tool being used.

Hello Bankeralle,

I allready read this bust. Cause the Software is for our Customers Worldwide I don't want to sign it by myself.

The Installation ist working fine, there is a question about installing unsigned drivers. This question I answer with "yes", the Driver is installed (it seems so).
But when I plug in the Device the Driver-installation-Wizard is comming up, looking for Drivers for this Hardware. And I don't know why.
Flags for difxapp is set to 10.

Regards

Hmmm,

also with DPinst it is not working.
I start "dpinst.exe /lm", the UAC asks me to do this. The dialog says everything is fine (no dialog about unsigned Driver and Windows-Logo-Test).
If I plug in the Device the driver-assistent is comming up.

The Driver basically was a inf and a Sys-File, I made a .cat-file with inf2cat.

Any Hints?

Regards

When using an unsigned driver you will always have to run through the driver install when you plug in the device and the only way around this is to sign it yourself or get it signed by the vendor.

There is NO way to work around this, no hack, no tickle, just signing :)

Ok, phoned with the vendor again.
The Hardware-installation-Dialog should only come on XP. on Vista, the unsigned driver will be installed with Admin-Rights, so the System knows that this driver is OK and don't asks again. On XP the System always shows this dialog.

So, i tested it under Vista business. There, a dpinst-Installation with the Flags /LM /P seems to work. But when I set the Flag "9" (8 for Legacy-Mode, 1 for forcing installation, according to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa906233.aspx) it wont work.

Very strange.

Who were you talking with at the vendor? The cat? Phone again and ask for someone who knows what they're talking about. Ask that person for a signed driver.

Yes, will do so. We now wan't a signed driver, will cost us a lot of money I think, but it's better then spending the Time with testing.

Thanks for all the help.

In mid-2009, anyone selling hardware for which they cannot supply a signed driver deserves to be out of business. It isn't rocket science. And it shouldn't cost you a bean. If they want to charge, find another supplier. It beggars belief, it really does...

The Hardware is build from us, we only buyed the driver by a external Company. So if we wan't a signed driver we have to pay for.

But I think there is no other way.

Well, the same principal applies. First, in this day and age, it shouldn't leave them unsigned. Second, it takes less than a minute to sign a driver. If they charge for that, they might as well charge for sending you emails as well. What a racket. Note to self: avoid unscrupulous (and, frankly, ignorant) software houses.
