Hardware Dev Center now automatically registers Extension IDs

Starting November 7, you will no longer need to register Extension IDs via service request. The Hardware Developer Center will automatically read Extension IDs from the INF file and register the ID against the organization submitting the Extension INF.


How do I register my Extension ID?

When you submit your extension driver, Hardware Developer Center will automatically read your INF and register the extension ID against your organization.

Can I reuse an Extension ID?

Yes, an organization can reuse its extension IDs. However, an extension ID registered for another organization cannot be reused and will result in a submission error.

What if the Extension ID I submitted is used by another organization?

Extension IDs cannot be reused across organizations. If this is done, the Hardware Developer Center will return the following error:

The ExtensionID used in this submission is already in use by another organization. Please resubmit with a new ExtensionID. Refer to this link for help.

Can I create a Shipping Label for my extension ID?

Shipping Labels are currently not allowed for extension IDs. We are working hard to enable this feature. We expect to provide it in early 2018.
