USB HID with proprietary VID

Question asked by aizenshtark.boaz on Feb 19, 2015
I've implemented a USB-HID device, based on the example provided by ST (STM32_USB-FS-Device_Lib_V4.0.0\Projects\Custom_HID).

The project requires I use a VID which is not STM's, so I aquired a VID from, and plugged it in the descriptor in usb_desc.c

Unfortunately, when plugging the device to a Windows-7 64-bit system, driver installation take a very long time, and ultimately fails.

  • Are there any other actions I should preform in order for windows to install the HID driver for my device?
  • If this involves providing my own *.inf file, must it be digitally signed by Microsoft?
