Signing multi-OS INFs


P

Pavel A.

Suppose a multi-OS INF file that installs three separate binaries for XP, Win2000 and win9x.
Q1. In order to get it signed, must I submit all three binaries?
Q2. At install time, must all binaries referenced by the INF (or .CAT?) be present on target machine?
That is, can I preinstall a signed package (using OemCopyINF etc), and omit files not relevant for the current OS?

Pavel

Hi Pavel,

I have answered your questions below.

A1. All binaries should be in the submission package. We no longer logo
Win9x drivers.

A2. You don't need to have unused binaries for installation.

A3. You can use setup packages to install the signed driver.
