Installing a Catalog File by using SignTool
SignTool is not a redistributable tool and therefore cannot be included with a redistributed installation application. However, SignTool can be used on a computer that has SignTool already installed in a manner that complies with the Microsoft Software License Terms for the tool. A catalog file can be manually installed from a command line or installed by command script by using the following SignTool command:
SignTool catdb /v /u CatalogFileName.cat
The catdb command configures SignTool to add or remove a catalog file from a catalog database. By default, SignTool adds the catalog file to the system component and driver database.
The /v option configures SignTool to operate in verbose mode.
The /u option configures SignTool to generate a unique name for the catalog file being added, if necessary, to prevent replacing an already existing catalog file that has the same name as CatalogFileName.cat.
CatalogFileName.cat is the name of the catalog file.
