Disable driver signing – windows 7

Posted: August 27, 2010 in How To - Windows 7, Uncategorized

I had a problem installing the tun/tap adapter for openVPN on my windows 7 machines. Windows complains about the driver not being digitally signed. I don’t care about this so I switched it off by doing this:

Hit your windows key and type cmd in the ‘Search Programs and Files Box’, now instead of just hitting ENTER, use CTRL+SHIFT ENTER to run as Administrator. Type the following into the cmd prompt and reboot.

bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON

Done!
