I've also used this tool for the same purpose, but it is not required
with the latest release of the drivers, all that is necessary is to
run "bcdedit /set testsigning on" and install the drivers, previously
there was a problem with the way they were signed which prevented the
drivers from loading even when test signing was enabled, but it is now

I have tested the latest release on both 2008x64 and 2008r2x64 both of
which require signed drivers and enabling testsigning was sufficient.
