About signed drivers...

A lot of the problems/issues around PPJoy have centred around driver signing (PPJoy uses test signing certificates which in turn requires Windows to be in Test Mode).

So why not simply sign PPJoy with the proper "real" certificates? Simple answer - they cost a lot of money: see $500 per year is downright nasty.

If enough people chip in with donations I will release a properly signed version of PPJoy, possibly as "PPJoyPro". I've been toying with the idea of a non-free PPJoyPro with some extra features (suggestions?)

Unfortunately PayPal does not allow South Africans to receive money - only send money through PayPal. Which means I need to find another way to set up a donate button or similar :-(

And comments/ideas?

New test release...

Hi all - not getting around to do a complete set of tests on the new installer (the driver code is still the same). So here it is if you want to try it:

This installer will properly check for a 64 bit OS and enable test mode. Note: the drivers are still only test signed and requires the OS to be in test mode. This installer just makes the process a lot easier.
