Device Driver on Windows

For part of a software project we need to be able to install a device driver, configure it and test it in the test environment. Since we're alreadyd usinng AppVeyor, it would make sense to do this there, too. As installing a device driver is a privileged operation requiring administrative access, I wonder if we can do that? Do we have such access in AppVeyor Windows VMs? The driver is creating a purely virtual device, no hardware required.

Kind regards

    Hi Noel,

    Absolutely, you have full administrative access on build worker VM and I know many customers use AppVeyor for testing device drivers.
