I have an application which installs 3 Kernel drivers....In the two kernel drivers are signed drivers...

Where as the third one is unsigned driver....I packaged this application for Vista for silent install...where i couldn't make it for silent install because it is popping up a window for the Unsigned driver....

How to suppress this pop up in Vista when installing an Unsigned driver....

- What application?

- How do you install these kernel drivers? INF?

- Is it possible to install this driver/service through sc.exe?

- There is some information about signing the driver yourself as well: http://itninja.com/question/how-do-you-roll-out-new-machines?0873&mpage=1&key=inf2cat&#20976

Drivers must be signed to be able to be installed on Vista without the administrator doing it.

Summary of Windows Kernel-Mode Driver Signing Requirements

Windows Vista: x86
Only administrators can install unsigned or self-signed drivers on Windows Vista: x86. The policy cannot be changed to allow users to install these types of drivers.

Windows Vista: x64
Self-signed drivers can be used only for testing on the x64 version of Windows Vista. Released drivers that are unsigned or self-signed do not load, even for administrators.
