Can I avoid signing the hook driver on my Dev Machine?

Postby blackpaw » Mon Feb 17, 2014 5:41 am

I'm going to be doing a lot of builds and testing on my dev pc (Win 7 Pro 64 bit). Is there a way to avoid the need for signing the global hook driver, so as to simply the test process?

Thanks - Lindsay

Windows normally refuses to load unsigned drivers. You could modify Windows to load unsigned drivers, too, but that is also a security problem. So I'd suggest that you simply automate the signing by using post-build events or batch files. Shouldn't be too much of a problem to automate it somehow...
