Possible to use stock Win8.1 driver with modded firmware?

Postby PWBarrett » 2015-Feb-Wed-16-Feb

So I did a custom build of Marlin for my Simple Metal with the 9-point levelling. Works great - makes a big difference for me...

But. Now to get Windows 8.1 to load a driver, I have to disable enforcement of driver signatures, and force it to load a port driver. I'm using the one that shows up called Printrbot Simple Metal. The driver that shows up in the Printers category called this won't load, only the one in Ports.

Anyway, Repetier and Cura are happy with this and printing works.

But I'd also like to be able to play with Microsoft 3d Builder. It now tells me I have no printer.

When you do your own build of the firmware, does this generate a checksum or GUID that has to match what's in the driver's .inf file?
Is there any way to force this to match, so that the stock driver will still work?
