I want to install printer on a huge amount of Windows 7 machines.
Some drivers are signed by recognized publishers, other not.
When there are not, and I do the manual process, I get the message
Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software, and the user may chose between security and functionality...
Problem : While i go through an automated process, the user cannot interact with the script, and the printer fails to install.
So, I browse the Internet, and after a lot of "disable-all-security-people", I found a partial solution to add some unsigned drivers, use (as administrator)
pnputils -a somedriver.inf
then I get a advertisement (I must click), and after choosing
Install this driver anyway, all the drivers which are related to this somedriver.inf can be installed by simple users, without this message.
(Other thinks can be done with pnputils, but I did not really grasp what it is intended for.)
But, I have to do this operation on each computer, for each drivers. Operation that will cause a lot of unfunny work...
(?) How can I add one driver publisher without being prompted? How can I test an inf file to see if it will be accepted or not?
