Windows 10 upgrades

TimmyDeanTimmyDean Member Posts: 1

I have a Windows 10 driver that I have signed via Microsoft and I install it just fine. However, when Windows 10 upgrades (recently to 1909) the registry keys to start the driver are missing. The xxxx.sys file was migrated but the registry keys to start the device driver are no longer present.
Is there something special I need to do to keep upgrades from removing the registry keys for the driver?

    I also noticed that the upgrade deleted the reg keys for some drivers, I think it was for manually installed drivers even if they where signed but it kept INF installed drivers!
