Designed for Microsoft Windows logo

Hardware products displaying the Designed for Microsoft Windows XP or Designed for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 logos have been tested for compatibility with Microsoft Windows operating systems through use of Microsoft-provided testing procedures. For the best performance, Microsoft recommends using hardware products that display the Designed for Microsoft Windows XP or Designed for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 logos on the external packaging and on the device itself.

Device drivers for hardware products with the Designed for Microsoft Windows XP or Designed for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 logos have a digital signature from Microsoft, indicating that the product was tested for compatibility with Windows and has not been altered since testing. For information on accessing the latest updates, including security fixes, service packs, new Help files, and device drivers, see Support resources. You may also want to contact the hardware vendor directly and ask for a device driver that has met the Designed for Microsoft Windows XP or Designed for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 logo requirements. For more information, visit the Microsoft Windows Logo Program on the Microsoft Web site.

Caution

  • Microsoft strongly recommends that you use only device drivers with the Designed for Microsoft Windows XP or Designed for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 logos. Installing device drivers that have not been digitally-signed by Microsoft might disable the system, allow viruses onto your computer, or otherwise impair the correct operation of your computer either immediately or in the future.
