Microsoft to Cancel Cross-Signing for Win7, Win8, Win 8.1

According to Microsoft's currently published plans, new versions of drivers (including Minifilters) will not be loadable on Win 7, Win 8, or Win 8.1 unless those drivers pass HLK/WHQL.

See the post in NTDEV on this topic here.

And for more information see the OSR Developer Blog post on this issue here.

This is a VERY SERIOUS issue, folks. I only WISH I was exaggerating.
