MotioninJoy and 64-bit users

On 64-bit machines (excluding 64-bit XP) Windows requires that all drivers have a driver signature.
Starting with the 0.6.0001 driver version, MotioninJoy now has a digital signature for the MiJ driver. See here for more: http://www.motioninjoy.com/blog/have-got-microsoft-code-signing-certification

  • If you are using the 0.6.0001 driver version or later you do not need to disable driver signature enforcement any longer and can skip the steps on the page.

  • If you are using the v6 alpha or earlier drivers on a x64 machine, you will need to disable Driver Signature Enforcement.

There are few ways of disabling Driver Signature Enforcement, here we will explain each way of doing it. You will only need to use 1 way to disable driver signature enforcement, not all of them. Once again if you are using the signed version of MiJ you do not need to disable Driver Signature Enforcement.

Method #1: "F8"

This is the easiest to remember, yet most annoying method of disabling Driver Signature Enforcement.

By pressing the F8 key while your system is booting, a advanced booting options menu for Windows will pop up. You will need to press the F8 key after the BIOS screens but before Windows loads (aka you see the Staring Windows screen).


Here you choose “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement” and press Enter to continue the boot process.
The downside to this is you must do this at every boot, as if you forget to press F8 yet you wanted to use the MiJ drivers, MiJ wont work until you reboot and press F8.

See here for a video on how the F8 Method works: PS3 Controller on your PC!

Method #2: 'cmd'

This is the easiest method to use, and it doesn't require you to remember to press F8 while booting. However it turns on Test Mode, and it leaves a little watermark at the bottom of your desktop saying Test mode is on.

Go to the Start menu and type cmd,then right click on cmd.exe and choose Run as Administrator. (If you have UAC on, click Yes)
In the command window,type the following, pressing Enter after typing each line. Also note the spaces!

bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON

Now reboot to enable Test Mode, and enjoy MotioninJoy.

Method #3: 'Signing' the drivers

The previous method just turns on Test Mode, but this method, in addition to turning on Test mode, also has you 'sign' the drivers. The watermark is still there as well.

To start, click the link to download Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider, then run it. You may need to turn UAC off for this work. You will need to sign all the files in the “C:\Program Files\MotioninJoy\ds3\drivers\x64” directory, most notably MijXfilt.sys and xusb21.sys. When you reboot your computer, you can now use the MiJ drivers without having to press F8 at every boot.

Note that if you reinstall the MiJ drivers, you will need to reapply this driver 'signing'.

Turn off Test Mode

Tired of running the system in Test Mode? Follow these steps to turn Test Mode off:

Go to the Start menu and type cmd,then right click on cmd.exe and choose Run as Administrator. (If you have UAC on, click Yes)
In the command window,type the following, pressing Enter after typing each line. Also note the spaces!

bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions ENABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING OFF
