Driver Signing for VISTA

All,

I am new to driver world!! I have a kernel mode driver(x86) which is
certified for 2k3 , I run this driver on VISTA and found to be working
without any change , my question is does this driver has to be certified
for VISTA ?

Note - I don’t have x64 version for driver.

Please clarify

Thanks and Regards

That depends on your marketing department. Your driver will run in
32-bit Vista, as you have noted. It will not run in 64-bit Vista, and
you cannot use the “Vista” logo. If you want either of those two things,
you will have to build a 64-bit driver and submit both to WHQL.
