Digital signature for driver DLLs

Post by NickoP » Tue 24 Jul 2018 09:06

Is it possible to add a digital signature to the driver libraries included the installation package?
Anti-virus software and Windows updates sometimes delete executable files and libraries without signatures, especially ones in the "Program Files" folder. We ran across this problem several times and this caused the software to stop working, requiring manual fix on the machines affected.
We use both MS SQL and Firebird dbExpress drivers by Devart.

Thank you for the information. We have added signature to the driver libraries, and the fix will be included in the next dbExpress drivers build.
