Amyuni Technologies is pleased to announce that its PDF Converter has obtained the Windows 7 Logo Certification. End-users and developers can benefit from this certification by working with a printer driver that is not only up-to-date, but also features more security and performance.
What is a Microsoft Logo Certification?
A Microsoft Logo Certification is the recognition that a software product has undergone and satisfied all of testing requirements specified by Microsoft. For a printer driver, some of these tests include:
- Verifying that the printer driver does not crash the operating system even under heavy stress.
- Verifying that the printer driver can run multiple print jobs at the same time.
- Verifying that the printer driver does not take up too many system resources (i.e., memory, GDI handles, etc).
- Verifying that the printer driver is compatible with the new features of the Windows 7 operating system.
- Verifying that the printer driver performs equally well under a 32- and 64-bit Windows 7 operating system.
If the printer driver successfully completes all of the tests, the Amyuni digital signature is applied to it and it becomes Microsoft-certified.
More Than Just Testing
A digital signature acknowledges more than the passage of rigorous software testing. Similar to a “time stamp”, a digital signature confirms the authenticity of a printer driver and indicates that it has not been altered since its testing by its creator(s), third-parties, or by malicious intent (viruses).
Developing With a Certified Printer Driver
Developing with the Amyuni PDF Converter is more than innovating with the latest Windows 7 technologies. Once it is embedded into a third-party product, developers can submit their application under the scrutiny of a Microsoft testing environment and (if it passes) receive its own Windows 7 certification. Such testing for a third-party product augments its Windows operating system compliance, compatibility, and credibility.
Custom Branding: Extending Product Recognition
Developers who already own a PDF Converter printer driver license can also take advantage of Amyuni’s custom branding option. Custom branding replaces Amyuni Technologies’ proprietary details from the printer driver’s Printing Preferences with those of the developer or vendor. Custom branding extends third-party product recognition and increases company visibility.
