Bypassing UAC for a Digitally Signed MSI

Question: Bypassing UAC for a Digitally Signed MSI

Dear All,
A vendor website sporadically release's MSI's which are digitally signed (plugins to run the content). These are required for the website to function.
Users are more in number so we can't manually install the MSI and time is a constraint.
Packaging / Repackaging is not a quick solution
App-locker doesn't bypass UAC, AUTO IT didn't help, Manifest and shim are only for Exe's.
We are looking for a solution where in since these are digitally signed MSI's Users should be able to install them automatically without being asked for the credentials.

Preferred Solution: Bypassing UAC for a Digitally Signed MSI

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm looking at my DirectX Diagnostic tool and it says for a few things
"The file ati2dvag.dll is not digitally signed" under Video, and "The file RtkHDAud.sys is not digitally signed" under sound 1 and 2. is this a serious problem? it might help solve why I've had a few crashes when playing games maybe? If anyone can help I will be very grateful, especially by telling me how to get these "signed"

Answer:Not Digitally signed?

I know very little about this kind of stuff but I think it just means it's a driver that hasn't been registered with Microsoft, or something along those lines. I don't believe it affects the operation of the thing.

Most of you know by now I hope that Vista requires it's drivers to be digitally signed by Microsoft. Is there a way to bypass this when the final product is released or do you think MS will back down due to public rage?

I have had to reinstall Windows 7 64-bit edition, and when I go to install PCWizard or Everest Home Edition, I keep getting an error about drivers not being digitally signed, and Windows will not install them. Before I reinstalled Windows 7, I had both of these programs running just fine. Is there anyway I can change the fact that Windows 7 will let me install those drivers?

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers?

The only way for 64 bit versions of Vista or Win7 to work without digitally signed drivers is to start them up using F8 to get teh Advanced Startup and disable the Digitally Signed Driver service.

If you had them working before did you make sure all your drivers now are current?

Hi Guys, I did a search of my OS, and found some Drivers not digitally signed.Is that a problem,as my PC is functioning OK.Thanks for any advice.

Answer:Digitally Signed Drivers.

Hi D,
Your ok for the most part. A driver that lacks a valid digital signature, or that was altered after it was signed, can't be installed on x64-based versions of Windows. As a result, you will see this message ( Windows cannot install this driver ) if you are running an x64-based version of Windows.

The only other time (I think) may be if you updat a driver. again you may get that can't install it error. You can visit the device manufacturer's support website to obtain a digitally signed driver for your device.

Am trying to install HP Deskjet 630c printer and it keeps telling me this driver is not digitally signed. I just put Windows xp on the computer. What does this mean and can I get help? I am not very computer literate and any help would greatly appreciated. Many thanks Paula.

Answer:driver is not digitally signed

"Not digitally signed" means Microsoft have not tested this driver and verified it to be compatible with Win XP.  This does not mean it will not work, you should click on the "continue anyway" to install your print driver.  If this is a concern you should check the HP web site for newer driver tested by MS.Kim

Good evening,

I just reinstalled XP on a friends machine that was pooched. It is a Dell DIM4400. Everything is working except for the sound card. It is a built in sound card. When the computer boots up the new hardware wizard comes up asking for a driver for a realtek AC97 Audio device. I have tried everything I can to install the driver but each time I try I get an error that the driver is not digitally signed and it won't install. If I try in safe mode it installs but I get a blue screen upon startup and have to reboot. I do not have the orignial Dell cd but I have tried every driver from the Dell site that should work on this model of computer. I have updated the chip set drivers on the motherboard etc. I just can't get this sound card to work. Any advice??

Answer:Windows Drivers Digitally Signed

The fact that the drivers are not certified by Microsoft merely means that the vendor did not submit them for testing and pay the bill to do so.

Many perfectly good drivers are not certified -- so do not worry about that unless you actually have problems with the hardware.

Having said that there are two ways you can restore the old drivers in XP. One is to go to the Device in question in the Device Manager, open its properties dialog (double click it) and select "rollback driver" on the driver tab. Windows XP backs these up automatically when you make a change.

The second is to use System Restore to return to a prior date.

So I just upgrade to Vista x64 and 4GB of memory (courtesy of OCZ).

However, when installing the x64 version of MagicDisc/MagicISO I get the following error:

Can I get around this?

Answer:Required Digitally Signed Driver?

Uhmmm... yes, you can by pressing F8 at boot time and choosing to ignore the warnings about unsigned drivers, but you have to do it each and every time you boot. There is a way to permanently disable that driver signing requirement but I'm leery to give out the info anymore since it hosed a few people's machines recently.

It wasn't my fault that they chose to continue using shitty old drivers, but they blamed me for the mistake they made anyway.

Vista x64 is a more secure and stable OS than the 32 bit version, and that's one of the primary reasons why: the driver signing requirement. Disabling it or 'getting around it' will more than likely end up causing you issues at some point.

Google can find the specific method to disable the signing requirement permanently, or a search here might find it since it's been posted about 3 times over the past 4 months or so.

Good luck, either way...

G'day. I'm trying to install my old VisionPLus DVB-T card into a Windows 7 O/S box and it won't recognise any of the old drivers. When I try to install the TwinHan Digital tv software, Windows can't/ won't install them.

I've downloaded and tried the latest (DigitalTV 3.4 Build 19-02_20090212) and windows comes up with "Driver not found". I've tried to install in compatability mode but still no good.

When installing the above, it identifies my card as “PCI CX-87A with MCU DVB-S/-C/-T/ATSC card”.

Out of all the available drivers on Twinhan's site, which would be the best for my card?

The one written for Vista would be my choice, probably not one for W7 yet, may never be.

Looks like MS ha removed a way to disable unsigned drivers protection in Vista64, so probably is the same for 7

The last few times I started my computer, the system comes with the warning:

"Windows requires a digitally signed driver
Driver: Broadcom NetDetect Driver

Publisher: Broadcom Corporation

Windows suggests to uninstall the program or device that uses this driver and check the publishers support site to get a digitally signed driver.

The problem is that I have no idea of which program or hardware is using this driver. All the drivers I have installed in my computer are from the computer manufacturer.
I have also been at Broadcoms homepage and there is plenty of things to download there. But I dont want to ruin anything.

Suggestions on what to do?

Answer:windows require a digitally signed driver xp 32 sp2

A signed driver is not necessary in Windows. It is an extra security layer, as drivers can become corrupt by malware. If you obtained the driver from a trusted source (like the device manufacturer's website), you can go ahead and tell Windows to install it.

Why is everyone saying Vista 64-bit won't install unsigned drivers? I installed the latest beta driver from nvidia and Vista warned that it was unsigned but gave me an option to install anyway.

Am I missing something/misinterpretting this or was this only the case in the Beta/RC verisons of Vista and everyone keeps bringing it up (kind of like requiring UAC for changing backgrounds; people still say Vista does it)?

Answer:Digitally signed drivers required under Vista 64-bit?

Short answer: The effects of FUD.

Long answer: The truth is, it was never stated on any official documents that Vista wouldn't accept unsigned drivers. The real mechanism is how Vista handles such drivers, in that the permission level changes, but that's such a 'behind the scenes' object that some ppl though it cooler to just say, "NOEZ, the sky is falling!".

Hi all, hoping this is the right subforum

I built a HTPC a few years ago and it had suited my needs fine. Relevant parts used are:
i3-3225 CPU,Scythe Big Shuriken 2 RevB,Asus P8-H77 Pro,2 x 4GB G.Skill Ares DDR3 1600 RAM,Samsung 830 Series 64Gb SSD (OS HDD),WD Cavier Green 2TB (Media HDD),

I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 but kept receiving errors, such as the partition was not GPT (0xc000021a). The one error that happens every time I tried to upgrade or install Windows 10 was winload.exe was not digitally signed. I wiped the drive, reformatted it as NTFS, converted to GPT and installed W10 from blank and still had the same winload.exe error. Right now I have put W7 Ultimate 64bit back on and am installing all the windows updates.

My question is, does anyone know why I keep get a winload.exe not digitally signed error?

From what I know if these progams are running and they aren't digitally signed then they are most likely a form of a virus. I can manually find the official conhost.exe from windows/system32 and run it, that creates a separate instance of it running, making two, the official and the supposed virus. Neither of the supposed virus executables do not open any properties when I right click and select properties from the task manager, which is another red flag.

I recently purchased a new pc that came with win vista 64 bit premium home installed. I am now reloading all my old programs and I keep getting ?windows requires a digitally signed driver" error message. I also can't seem to play my old movie files, all of which played fine when I had Win XP. Apparently Vista does not want me to make my own decisions, so I am wondering how I might go about disabling all this extra secure vista crap. Can I go into Control panel and disable the BitLocker Drive Encryption? Or do I need uninstall 64bit and install the Vista 32 bit? Would that be a smooth transition? Would all my stuff work again if I had the less securitized 32bit Vista? Thanks for any help you may provide.

Answer:windows requires digitally signed driver

Welcome to the Vista forums

1) You don't want to disable UAC (User Account Control) as it does a lot to protect your computer from various malware. If you really feel the urge to turn it off, then you can in control panel in the User Account section. Once turned off, you'll get the red shield in the bottom right saying it's disabled. Disable security warnings by opening security centre and going to "change how security centre warns me" or something and choose the "no warnings" option.

2) Just download the Vista codec pack (just Google it and you should find it) and DivX and you should have no problems watching videos.

3) You can install unsigned drivers on Vista 64 bit, do this by running an elevated command prompt (right click on command prompt in Start menu and click "run as administrator".

Type this and press enter bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

When you reboot, you should be able to install unsigned drivers.
Also, I looked on the HP website for your computer, and it has 6GB RAM, so going to Vista 32bit would only allow you to use about 3.5GB RAM. I also saw it only has an Nvidia 6150e onboard graphic card. Are you using this? As if you upgraded this to a graphic card, you'd notice better performance on Vista as well.

You don't have to worry about system files that are not digitally signed, it only means microsoft hasn't run extensive tests on them. The file owner (nvidia for most of your nvxxx.dll files for instance) will have tested them to make sure they would work fine with XP so you shouldn't have any problem.

Answer:Digitally signed printer drivers with windows XP

I have a home network. All my machines were running Windows ME. I have an HP Deskjet895Cxi printer attached to one of the machines. I could print to the printer from any machine. Now I have a new machine running Windows XP and the printer is attached to this machine. I can print OK from the XP machine but none of the other ME machines can. I see in the printer properties that I can add a printer driver for ME but every time I try this (using the latest ME driver from HP)I get the message that the driver is not digitally signed and the driver is not loaded. How do I get a digitally signed driver for my printer?Alan

I am trying to install my Adaptec 1430SA controller card, for use with Win7 64bit, i have been trying for hours !

Hello everyone,

I am trying to install windows and I have a MSI 890FXA-GD70 [product page] that is setup with a functioning RAID 0 configuration. My issue is when I get to the step where you select your hard drive, it doesn't show up.

So I click "Load Drivers" and select the x64 raid driver I got from MSI. It shows up, then I click next and then the error message comes up: "To continue installation, use the Load Driver option to install 32-bit and signed 64-bit drivers....etc"

I restarted and spammed f8 to get into advance startup options. I selected "Disable digital driver signing"

However that did not fix the problem.

Does anyone have any tips or a solution?

Windows Vista x64 decided to implement a 'security measure' by which all drivers must be 'digitally signed' to be allowed to install and run. I have a program which is compatible with Vista and x64 bit operating systems, however as its drivers are not digitally signed I cannot run it correctly - I recieve the message 'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' and access to the driver is blocked.

Is there a method of bypassing this?

Answer:'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' - How can I bypass this?

When you boot your system hit F8 and you can bypass it there. You will have to do this every boot. There are a couple applications out there that will do this for you but the names escape me right now.

I'm at my wits end. Anyone who can help would be my hero.

Acer 5253 laptop, Win7 Home Premium 64bit SP1, AMD C-50.

Trying to use a USB mouse. I have 3 logitech mice. None work because hidclass.sys and hidusb.sys are not digitally signed. If I f8 and disable driver signing enforcement, all 3 mice work, so I'm pretty certain that's the issue.

Tried "Update Driver" via device manager. Windows determined that I already had the best driver and wouldn't do anything.

Logitech does not furnish drivers for Win7. They rely on the native drivers.

Acer does not furnish mouse drivers. They refer you to the manufacturer of the mouse.

Tried copying the files in question from a 64bit machine that showed them to be digitally signed. Renamed the ones on my machine and pasted the ones from the "good" machine. Resolved nothing.

chkdsk /r found problems and repaired them. Didn't help.

sfc /scannow found problems that it could not resolve. Looked in CBS.log and found no references to either of the sys files in question. No resolution.

System Restore only had one restore point, and it was from 2 days ago. Problem was already noticed by then. I suspect that it's been this way since I purchased the laptop a couple of months ago anyway, but if there had been a restore point back at the very beginning, I'd have tried that.

Hi and welcome

Well paranoid doesnt mean you are wrong, but unless you work for the NSA and have money to throw at something you have to consider that even if signed its still sent in the clear. Passwords, credit card numbers, etc. digitally singed means they know it comes from you. If I were concerned (and am) I use pgp to encrypt. that way it is both not in the clear and if the person the other end has your public key knows it came from you

Hi Friends !

My digital camera is C-120 Olympus with a 128 smart media card.

Now my question is that when I wish to email or burn the photographs onto a cd the size of the photographs after emailing/ copying ,fills more than the size of the screen .
That is when we open the mail/cd the photo's are extremely large in size .
This does not happen in the camedia software when I am previewing the snaps( they fit to the screen).

i am taking photo's in the 1600 x 1208 mode. I suppose this is the perfect clarity and since I have a 128MB, card space is not a criteria.

Here's the dilema:

I've got a dvd full of performances by The Doors. I want to transfer the audio digitally. I can do it in analog, but digital is of course better.

So, I run my optical cable from my dvd player into my audigy 2's live drive. So far, so good. I hit play on the dvd and begin recording with creative's shitty software. The levels on the recording software are moving, giving me the impression that audio is being picked up.

However, when I stop the recording to listen to what I have transfered so far, I get nothing but an obnoxious clicking noise. I'm guessing that this is some type of 'digital copy protection'.

My question-- is there anyway around this? This isnt a store bought dvd... its one that a friend of mine compiled.... thats why I'm a little confused about the copy protection. He said he couldnt digitally transfer the audio either. I've tried other pieces of software-- cool edit, soundforge and goldwave... all had the same results.

Is there any piece of software or anything that will let me tigitally transfer this audio?

Thanks much

Answer:Cant digitally transfer audio from a dvd

Is this a video or audio DVD? For a video DVD you'd use a program like.. I dunno, DVDDecryptor or something to extract the AC3 stream(s).

Audio DVDs I don't think there's a solution for, but then, I don't see how your friend could have produced one.

Guess you could try then, but I don't know if that one introduces more conversions.

The first one being the colour of pretty much all of the picture. I took a shot indoors which had artificial light, I used the correct white balance but as my subject was in a small room the colour does not look natural at all. The subject seems like they have been to the sun tan shop for far too long. Is there any way I could fix this?

Also a couple of shots have been taken with no flash and on a couple I get very greasy and shiny foreheads. Is there anyway I can fix this too?

Some of my night shots were taken indoors with flash and as you can imagine the results were very washed out. Is there a way I could help reduce the flash drownage?

I have adobe photshop 7, imageready 7 and roxio photosuite 5 to edit my photos. As I am getting more and more into photography I would consider buying a new program that could help me with these common problems I face.

Also, I use a free program called raw essentials for my raw files. It is excellent for converting to black & white and sepia as you can adjust the colour on a slider. Only thing is I rarely take raw shots due to memory card usage. Does anyone know of a program that can let me make similar adjustments?

We are in the process of developing a Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) and a Key Storage Provider (KSP) which are implemented as Dynamic-link libraries (.dll). The final product needs to be digitally signed in order for Windows to accept and use our implementations.

I read on MSDN that developers used to send an email to [email protected] and request that Microsoft do the signing. I sent an email to them, requesting more information about the process, but haven't received any feedback in about three months.

I figured an alternative would be to buy a "Code Signing certificate for Microsoft Authenticode" from a trusted CA, such as Symantec, and use that to sign the appropriate files ourselves. Would this be possible? I am just not sure whether it is permitted that security products, such as CSPs and KSPs, can be signed by the developers themselves and whether Microsoft wants to look at the implementations first.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

If that doesn't work, you can try the following... I have tested the following steps with both Vista and 7, and it should also work for Windows 8... But I haven't tested it yet.

When I attempt to play an Audio CD I am prompted with the following dialog: We have determined that Windows Media Player cannot accurately read your CD drive digitally. Windows Media Player will therefore switch to reading your CD drive in analog mode. Your CDs will play, but the following items will not work when playing CDs: Visualizations, SRS Wow effect, Graphic Equalizer.

Could someone please explain what's happening all of a sudden? WMP was playing fine until recently.

Someone suggested that I change my drive designations back to default. I recently switched letter designations for my burner and my DVD-ROM drive. I attempted to switch them back by going to Device Manager but was unable to. My CF Card reader had taken over one of the previous letter designations of one of the other two drives. So I went into Device Manager to straighten things out, but now I can't even find my CF Card reader listed. It was there before! In fact, it still works, but for some reason it's not showing up in Device Manager. I find all of this really confusing. If I could find it perhaps I could get the three letter designations back to what they ought to be, and maybe then WMP would work properly.

I would really appreciate help with this very annoying problem.

Thank you,

Answer:[Solved] Windows Media Player cannot read CD drive digitally

Okay, I solved my own problem again. All I had to do was go into Device Manager > CD-ROM and remove something called NERO-IMAGEDRIVE 2. Doing so allowed me to switch my D and E drives back to their default settings. I had recently reversed them and found that I couldn't switch them back until I first got rid of IMAGEDRIVE 2.

Anymore it seems that every day I have another annoying problem pop up, some undoubtedly of my own making.

Hoping for a easy solution.

Bought 50 licensed copies of a dictionary program to be used in a classroom.
Great, but unfortunate 1/2 the pcs have inop cd-roms making the install a hassle. Luckly copying the files to a usb drive 350M and installed fine.

Next problem:

For some bizarre reason the program uses copy protection (securerom ) and needs the cd in to run. This isn't Crysis 3, photoshop or Autocad! just application software for ESL students.

Don't really have the money to repair all the pcs just to run this software.

This software is not available to be network installed so I'm kinda stuck here.

I was thinking of making it a thinapp but the protection gets in the way.

I could maybe mount it as an iso, network wide with tool deamon...

Every solution probably goes against its license agreement...

Anyone got an idea?

Answer:Bypassing need of cd... not what you think.

Question: Bypassing a Proxy?

Hey guys not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but...

In my company the network Nazis are really blocking many web sites, I was wondering is there a software that will connect me to a remote proxy server? For example, I can not read my hotmail anymore, is there a way around the company proxy?

Answer:Bypassing a Proxy?

We don't help with bypass legal restrictions on company networks. I suggest you simply do your assigned work and read your email on your own time.

Question: Bypassing Proxies

Edited by me, did not realise i was breaking a rule.

Answer:Bypassing Proxies

You'll have to stick to the rules of usage and the way the network is setup. It's really at their discretion. If you want to use the services you're talking about, you'll have to buy your own access.

My guess is they may not have a fat pipe for internet access and therefore limit what it can be used for. It's a nice perk for an apartment complex and probably services most residents well who only use the internet for e-mail and basic surfing. For more demanding users, such as yourself, it just isn't going to cut it.

By the way, it's against this site's rules to help people bypass restrictions placed on their networks by the owners. So you're not going to get any help with your original question.

For whatever reason, the BIOS will not come up when my computer boots up (neither F12, F2 or Del will work, instead the splash screen will just freeze, and then the computer would turn off altogether after a few minutes). Is there a way to tell Windows Vista to boot to the CD drive when I restart?


Answer:Bypassing F12 to boot to CD?

Have you tried so called "cold boot". Turn the power totally off, turn it back an then F2, as long as it needs to go to BIOS. That needs PS/2 keyboard, USB wakes up too late.

Let's start off will a short little story about my life. At the beginning of December last year my laptop, HP pavilion Touchsmart 15" sleekbook, decided to go to ****. First indications pointed to the hard drive and when I called HP they said I needed to buy their $130 replacement to rectify my problems. Being fairly tech savvy and having a curiosity of how things work I decided to figure out a different solution. I found out that it was a problem with the boot files in windows. I used a rescue .iso from linux and saved some important stuff but I made a few mistakes and lost most everything else. I got a clean version of windows 8.1 enterprise and restored my PC. Everything was going fine I was slowly building back to the previous functionality I had gotten to over a year. Then on Christmas my hard drive crashed and the computer couldn't even boot. The drive was unrecognizable. I bought a replacement (upgrade) and I decided I wanted to get the most out of my rebuild so I ordered some more RAM...I was running on 6GB from the manufacturer there was a 4GB and 2GB in my motherboard. I didn't think there would be a limit to how much RAM I could use with windows 8 x64 bit, so I bought an 8GB module thinking I could double my RAM and run SolidEdge more smoothly and who knows what else. Unfortunately, I have recently learned that I am limited to 8GB of RAM with this specific chipset processor is AMD A6-4455m APU

My knowledge is fairly limited compared t... Read more

Answer:Bypassing the RAM limit

If your motherboard is limited to 4GB per memory slot there is not much you can do.

What does the system report with only the 8GB stick in the machine? Does it read 4GB, the full 8GB, or does it not boot at all?

How do I get rid of the start and log in screens when 8.1 boots? I would like to go straight to my desktop.

Also, can I get rid of the Windows start button and use Classic Shell instead?

Answer:Bypassing log in at boot

I'm unsure if you can bypass the log in screen as it not only logs into your account but also loads drivers and the OS in the background.

What I'd like to know is if you can make log in picture smaller system wide.

Question: Bypassing Putty


My sister came back for Xmas holiday and she was at the University of Alberta. Anyway, they use the program called Putty for their computer to access the internet. But now that she is back, we want to connect her laptop to our ISP, Telus. I've changed the MAC address to Telus so it knows to give the internet to the laptop, but I think that Putty is interfereing and not letting it connect to Telus. In "Address Type" it says configured manually when it should say Assigned by DHCP. So how am I going to bypass Putty or something in order to get on Telus?

THanksClick to expand...

Hi Ace_Mak,

First things first, ok.
Putty is a known ssh secure way of connecting over the Internet to a remote site, as opposed to using telnet protocol which is not secure - i.e. always prefer to use putty.exe as a high level means of connecting over Internet - once your ISP connection is established, not before - i.e. putty is not a means of connection to an ISP at the dialup (modem) level, but is a higher level application using a higher level protocol. Your sister's university probably has a high speed connection directly to the Internet, and I'm not certain what the particular use of putty is in that context.

As an example to explain the use of putty, I once had an email account at a different ISP than my primary one. Once I connected to my primary ISP which brings up a webpage, I could choose to either connect to the email only ISP via telnet or put... Read more
