$200 a year is possible as well, I'm not broke, considering I have a pretty steady income at the moment from this project I've been working on, though I'm pretty sure you don't need to be a company to have a driver signed because one of my friends got one signed, maybe I can talk to him about it because I'm sure I can dig up the cash...or we could crowd fund, if that's even allowed?Originally Posted by Melan
Afaik you need to be a company to have a driver signed and it costs more than 100$ a year. Though DigiCert costs something like 111$ a year. Nvm wrong certificates. Their prices are in 200s.
Ah you're right, didn't look up if the $100-$200 a year certificates supported kernel mode drivers, $450 is pretty steep even for crowdfunding, I probably wouldn't go into $450 for crowdfunding considering how small of a change this would be, it's not like we're crowdfunding for a new MLT04, $100-$200 for people to use a WMO for a year would be fine by me but $450 for a year just so 5-10% of people can use WMOs is pretty insane. Lets just crowdfund to revive the MLT04 series mice and modernize them...we could only hope, right?Originally Posted by povohat
As of right now, if you want to sign kernel mode code (eg: what hidusbf is), it must be done with an Extended Validation certificate. You're looking at about $450. Thanks Microsoft.
My dear friends, binaries are in public domain - you can do all you want. Include to sign driver and distribute itOriginally Posted by Alya
I'm not sure if speaking of offering money for something is against the rules, but if SweetLow lets me I'd be willing to pay for the cert for a year if it's $100 or so.
MS unsigned drivers allowed to load in Test Mode only starting from Vista x64 SP1You can probably just go through self signing it if you want to use it w/o test mode in Windows 7, dunno if it works on W7+ though, I heard past W7 that self signed drivers don't work if you're not in test mode but don't quote me on it because I could be wrong.
