Hello
Like in topic.
Version 1.7.0 signed drivers with proper signature, 1.8.0 signs drivers, but Windows outputs dialog about untrusted driver vendor (Screenshot below).

Also can you add checking for drivers update both WHQL and Hotfix?

does this cause any problems?

for now no plans to add hotfixes, nvidia releases whqls pretty quickly, so shouldnt be a big deal, you can always install the manually (3rd option on start screen)

1. It doesn't, just my personal preference to install property signed driver.
2. That's how I am doing this now; notification on desktop would be nice however.

I've also wondered why it's no longer able to sign properly. Not a huge deal, but it has interrupted installs I've left running, only to come back and find it halted because of the non-signature.

Out of curiosity, how come NVcleanstall isn't able to sign the drivers now with 1.8.0? What changed?

I changed the signing method to be MUCH faster, but apparently lost some signing magic on the way. Will look into this some more, once I have more time

Besides the "unsigned driver" alert box during installation, is anything else affected?

I think I found the problem, will do more testing after 6700 XT reviews

So the new code gives you:


The old code gives:


Other than the color, why bother?

Edit: yay, I think I figured it out, please test this build. there should be no popups or warnings and the signing process should complete in a few seconds

I can't test this now, but I will try this when I leave hospital
