FAQ | Allow unsigned driver installation?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Not sure if this has been asked yet but here goes.

We have a new web cam we want to deploy via Active Directory.

I have a msi package for it but because our users are not admins they can not install the unsigned drivers it requires.

Is there anyway to sign them myself?

Or is there a tool that allows me to bi-pass this requirement of windows?

Cheers

Sadly it does not appear to work.

I confirmed the registry keys after using the exe but when I manually try to install the drivers I still get the dialog.

Will do some more research but it aint looking good :(

LOL

I ran the exe

went into windows hardware.

clicked update drivers

linked to drivers

it said they were unsigned and came with the usual confirm screen

I installed them

I used task manager to close the exe.

What is the correct order?

Cheers again for the help :D

Odd... Could you please tell me WHICH WatchDriverSigningPolicy.exe you're using? (Where did you get it?)

Are they domain users with no local profile? if so you could temp add them to the local admin group via a script then remove after the install, you can also use (the mostly forgotten) RUNAS command from a batch file as part of the install the only problem with RUNAS is that you would need to use a third party app to pass the the admin password to RUNAS

Interesting concept there.

Yeh all users are domain based.

Going to have a look around. Got a bluetooth dongle here and its software bi-passes policies etc when installing on a machine before sp2 (MS would not sign drivers to work on SP1 as it was unsupported).
