Certified driver package still warns about non-certification

    We have gotten one of our products to pass WHQL certification and received a
    ..CAT file. IT also shows up in Windows Update. Unfortunately this .CAT file
    does not seem to prevent the warning against installing unsigned drivers. We
    can't seem to figure out what to do with the CAT file. The email from the
    Winqual techs says "Please put the .cat file where ever your driver package
    is located. " but that's not very specific. Does it go in the directory where
    the rest of the driver files are? Where the original installer lives?

    It is part of your install package. The files you are proposing to
    install have to be exactly the same files you got signed. Anything
    else is going to result in unsigned warnings and/or install failures.
