If you have a code signing certificate that was issued before the Win10 release date, you can continue to use it with the old driver signing method until it expires.

As far as I see; WIN10 does not allow Installation of driver signed after its Release Date.

In other words, doing a driver package today for WIN10 is not possible anymore without using the Microsoft Signing Services.

(please confirm or if there is a workaround? )

Consequently we need to register on Microsoft DashBoard (https://sysdev.microsoft.com/) and sign different agreements…

*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 ?

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