Windows Vista PatchGuard disabled by boot option?

#1
Hello,

due to my development with EasyHook, I discovered that PatchGuard seems to be disabled if "bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON" and/or "bcdedit /debug ON" is set as boot option. :mad: Can anyone confirm this statement? :confused:

I checked it by hooking KeCancelTimer() which should actually be in the scope of PatchGuard, shouldn't it? Actually nothing happend...

Hi,

I don't see the point where they are talking about breaking patchguard. But okay this was not my question. I solved it myself now. debugging will disable it according to the microsoft homepage:

bcdedit /debug on
bcdedit /dbgsettings serial /start Autoenable /noumex

and you are done..
