Windows 7 requires signed driver

Recommended Posts

System:

Windows professional 7 x64 

NBench 4.05

I have this installed on two nearly identical Windows 7 virtual machines.

The older Windows 7 runs NovaBench without any problems.

The newer virtual machine presumably with some more updates, gives the signed driver error at startup and will not work.

 

I saw the same issue posted earlier in 2017 which mentions a resolution in version 4.02

 

What configuration change to I perhaps need?

 

Thanks

I have this same issue on a Windows Ultimate SP1 machine. 

I have set the Code Signing for Device Drivers to ignore as per another help forum, but it did nothing for me.

I have also tried to install the older 4.0.2, but had the same issue.

I solved my issue with this.

It says that it does not work with Win 7 x64, but it worked just fine for me.

  1. Disable User Account Control (UAC) and reboot;
  2. Go to Start and type cmd in the search box;
  3. Right-click on cmd.exe (should be at the top of the list) and select Run as administrator;
  4. In the newly created command prompt box, type the following (pressing enter after each line):
    Code:
    bcdedit /set testsigning on
    bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
    
    Note: DDISABLE is NOT a typo!
  5. Install the problematic driver and reboot;
  6. Your driver should now load successfully and you may now enable UAC!

I haven't been able to reproduce this error on my Windows 7 test machine.

Your workaround here will certainly work, but is a security risk. The Novabench driver is signed so it shouldn't be necessary.

I'll keep investigating. If you're having this problem, please leave a post so I can get an idea of how common it is.
