WHQL certified driver won't install silently

10/21/2014 2147 views
Hi all, 

I'm trying to install a device driver that is WHQL certified (according to the vendor) : http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/D2XX.htm

I used dpinst together with a bunch of command line parameter combinations from /q /sw /lm /se ... nothing seems to work however.  When I don't use the /q, there's this Continue Anyway / STOP Installation window popping up.

Is there a way to get these drivers installed?  (it's for Windows XP)

I understood you can't silently install unsigned drivers, but isn't WHQL certified the same as signed?

Thanks for your feedback!

WHQL certified means that they conform to windows programming standards as far as I am aware, but code signing is a different process entirely.  You can code sign non WHQL drivers.....
