VS2013 Express driver production signing fails

    Question

  • Hi all,

    We've developed a VS2013 kernel mode driver project that is able to produce a driver with a test certificate and works on the target platforms. 

    We've purchased Comodo RSA Codes Signing Certificate that is installed in the Certificate Manager Trusted Root Certificate Authorities store.  I've opened the driver project properties:

    • Selected Driver Signing (both package and driver)
    • Selected Production Sign
    • Input the name of my Production Certificate in the Production Certificate field.
    • Input the TimeStampServer as http://timestamp.comodoca.com/rfc3161

    I get the following error:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\build\WindowsDriver.common.targets(1177,5): error : Invalid argument <VT Miltope Corporation (Miltope Corporation)> for property <ProductionCertificate>.

    Looking at the Sign.xml file that runs the Property Pages, it appears I should be able to open an editor and select the certificate from the store, but I'm not able.  Any insight into how to get this to work?

    TIA,

    John
