    I'm interesting in WHQL signing of legacy driver, which acts as kernel
    extension for process that uses this driver. Is it possible?

    Thanks for assistance.

  2. For what? WHQL is for hardware drivers and antivirus FS filters only.

    In other words, not all kernel components required to be WHQL certified?

  4. Yes. Technically, only the components installed by PnP or INetCfg must,
    since only these installers check for WHQL signature.

    If you install the driver by CreateService or registry hacks and start it
    by SC APIs or automatically - then no WHQL.

    Search for WHQL Code Coverage Pilot Program on microsoft.com

    AFAIK the "Code Coverage" basically means that Winqual engineer will do
    a code review on your driver + verification tools like Prefix.
    It takes lot of time and is expensive, compared to normal HCT self-test categories.
    So beter avoid it if you can.
