Just fyi Klaus, It seems that you can have just one version of the driver
for all Win OSs. So no need to have to different versions.

*How do I sign a driver so that it is compatible with Windows Vista,
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10?*

All you need to do is run the HLK tests for Windows 10 and run the HCK
tests for Windows 8.1 and earlier versions as you have in the past. Then,
using the Windows 10 HLK, merge the two test logs and submit your driver
along with the merged HLK/HCK test results to theWindows Hardware Developer
Center Dashboard portal <https://sysdev.microsoft.com/hardware>. The portal
will sign the driver correctly such that it will work on all platforms that
you indicate.
