    I'm new to driver signing and DPInst. Just built a filter driver for 2003
    x64, used a test certificate, generated cat file using inf2cat and signed it.
    Then on a test machine, I imported the certificate and verified the signed
    package. However, when I used DPInst to install the package, I failed. The
    log message is like this. Any idea? Thanks.

    Did you sign the .sys binary too? That's required on x64.

    Signed the cat file. Does that impact the DPInst installation?

  4. No, it wouldn't impate the DPInst installation.
    On Vista x64, you must sign kernel mode binaries in order for them to LOAD,
    but a catalog signature is fine unless it is a boot critical driver.

    Looking at the error message, the problem was not signing related. The
    failure occurred while adding the driver to the driver store (driver
    installation), not while loading the driver (which is when the 64 bit kernel
    mode security checking is done).

    Something about your driver package is wrong, but I can't tell what from the
    error message. It's not the signing.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    True enough (though it's still an important point, of course).

    OP: can you post your INF file and a list of the files in your install
