No, it does not work anymore on WIN10 release, this is what I’ve experimented
last days when building a new driver version,

This is also explained there:

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

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).
