    Hi,

    I am upto go with making Test signing for my driver set (UsbSer.sys +
    MyConvert.INF). i followed the KMCS_walkthrough.doc which explains how to
    proceed to obtain a test sign the data in summary says so -
    1. Prepare a computer for test-signing.
    2. Create a test certificate by using MakeCert.
    3. Create a catalog file by using MakeCat or Inf2Cat.
    4. Test-sign the catalog file by using SignTool.
    5. Install the test certificate in the Trusted Root Certification
    Authorities certificate store.

    Now coming to my issue, i am through step 2. but for step 3 (using the
    Toaster examples .CMD script file in WDK(6000)) i am not able to generate a
    ..cat file to proceed further in which "Signability" tool is used in the .cmd
    file

    did anyone encounter the same before, i came to know that "INF2Cat" is the
    one much effective, but in vain, neither i could get it as standalone nor
    with "winqual submission tool .msi setup".

    Thankful if any one could suggest how to proceed either "how to generate a
    ..CAT file using signability" else a place to get inf2cat.exe (and its
    components).

    I tried to sign the driver itself, but it doesn't work on Vista 64-bit. It
    seems like self-signing is not working.
    If you do it, please share the secret with me :)

    Did you follow the instructions in the "How to Install and Load a
    Test-Signed Driver Package" section of KMCS_walkthrough.doc? E.g. did
    you enabled test signing on the target machine using bcdedit?

    If so, did you follow the instructions in the "How to Troubleshoot
    Test-Signed Drivers" section? What did the event log show you?

  4. INF2CAT is now shipped in the WDK. Install 6001 from Connect.
    If inf2cat doesn't generate your cat file, please include specific failure
    information when you post.
    Thanks,
    Jennifer

  5. When you say "it doesn't work on Vista 64-bit" what isn't working? Please
    provide more details.
    Thanks,
