In the dozen or more agreements , there are also different responsibility
topics, that only a lawyer can evaluate correctly in term of risk…

So I have basically 2 questions:

What is the exact list of Agreements that must be signed to be able to make
code-signing on an audio driver ?

It is a long list (two dozen?) of agreements and addenda, everything from the
use of the logo, to known exceptions, to quality promises, to ethical
considerations. Nothing too onerous. Everyone who has ever submitted to WHQL
has gone through it.

What is the technical and financial risk ? (some agreement are about technical
constraint , some other talk about paying Microsoft for testing services).

Payment is only an issue if you intend to go through WHQL testing or get the
Windows logo. Attestation does not require payment.
