    Changing "Friendly Name" in Device manager on Win 10




      Im using FX3 CYUSB3Kit-003 on Windows 10, which is the SuperSpeed Explorer Kit. When adding J4 jumper to the board in the device manager it shows up as "Cypress FX3 USB BootLoader Device". Which is fine. After i program the board with my development firmware it uses the Cypress VID and PID from the StreamerExample and thats how it shows up in the device manager "Cypress FX3 USB StreamerExample Device". I am using the driver installed in the following path C:\Program Files (x86)\Cypress\EZ-USB FX3 SDK\1.3\driver\bin. 


      What i want is when i program it with my development firmware i would like the friendly name to be changed to a custom name for the product. When i tried to edit the .inf files in the above driver\bin folder and placed my own string, Windows 10 would fail to install that driver because that new string was not part of the Driver Signature. So my question is this is there a way i can change the friendly name without having to get a certificate and having to submit the generic Cypress driver to Microsoft again for resigning?
