How to elminate “unsigned driver” install error for RNDIS driver on WInXP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an application which uses the RNDIS USB driver, aka "Linux USB Ethernet/RNDIS Gadget" to talk to a linux based embedded device.

    We have digitally signed (with a Verisign certificate) this driver for use with Windows 7. This eliminates an "unsigned driver" error message on install.

    On XP, however, even a signed driver displays a "Linux USB Ethernet/RNDIS has not passed Windows Logo testing..."

    This is, evidently, a driver developed by Microsoft. I saw reports that this and other drivers were signed in SP2 and this broke in SP3.

    The goal is to do an install of the driver without a warning or error. Is this driver, or a compatible driver, available anywhere else? Is there a way to get it signed through WHQL?

  • Since you'r sure about the source of the drivers, follow these steps: right-click mycomputer>click properties,click the hardware tab, then under "what action do you want windows to take?" section select ignore,make it the default, click ok. you can revert to the previous settings later after installing the trusted driver
