Information

 
Question
I got USB VID&PID via USB sub-licensing program (http://www.microchip.com/usblicensing). What's next?
Answer
After obtaining the PID via USB sub-licensing program (http://www.microchip.com/usblicensing), you need to re-sign or sign the USB drivers for the new PID. 

Detailed information can be found in the MLA - Microchip Libraries for Applications (http://www.microchip.com/mla). 

For the MLA version v2017_03_06, the information can be found in: 
  • document: "C:\microchip\mla\v2017_03_06\doc\USB - Obtaining a WHQL Certified USB Driver Package.pdf" 
  • paragraph "1.7.5 Driver Signing and Windows 8" from the document: "C:\microchip\mla\v2017_03_06\doc\help_mla_usb.pdf"

The certificate must be purchased from Certificate Authority – CA, and VerySign (acquired by Symantec) is one of these authorities.

Other information about driver signing can be found in these articles from Microsoft:
