Build & Install

This document helps you to build and install HyperDbg

Download & Install

To build HyperDbg, you need to install the following software.

Visual Studio Community, Enterprise or Professional 2015 or later.

Windows Software Development Kit (Windows SDK) for Windows 10

Windows Driver Kit (WDK)

Build & Compile

First, clone the project using git or download it here.

git clone --recursive https://github.com/HyperDbg/HyperDbg.git

Open the visual studio and build the solution.

After building, you need to disable driver signature enforcement. It is because the current versions of HyperDbg are not digitally signed.

For this purpose, you can Disable Driver Signature Enforcement or Put Windows in Test Mode.

Disable Driver Signature Enforcement

This is the simplest way to disable driver signature enforcement on Windows 10 but bear in mind that this method will temporarily disable driver signature enforcement.

After you restart, your computer driver signature enforcement will automatically turn itself on.

To disable driver signature enforcement, do the following:

  1. Press and hold the Shift key on your keyboard and click the Restart button.

  2. Choose to Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings and click the Restart button.

  3. When your computer restarts, you’ll see a list of options. Press F7 on your keyboard to select Disable driver signature enforcement.

  4. Your computer will now restart, and you’ll be able to install unsigned drivers.

Bear in mind that this method only temporarily disables driver signature enforcement, and after a restart, you have to re-disable it again.

Put Windows in Test Mode

In test mode, you can install any drivers you want without experiencing any problems. Don’t forget to go to normal Windows 10 mode after you solve your problem:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt window on your PC: right-click on the Windows Start icon and select Command prompt (Admin).

  2. In cmd type:bcdedit /set TESTSIGNING OFF

  3. Close the cmd window and restart your computer.

  4. Install your drivers.
