Game Rating

Parental Controls

The GDF contains all the metadata associated with the game including the game's rating. Windows Parental Controls use the game's rating to allow parents to control access to the game. The binary file which contains the GDF must be digitally signed with a valid Authenticode certificate; otherwise, Game Explorer and the parental control system will ignore the game's rating, since the rating information cannot be trusted without certification. The Advanced Installer Games Explorer configuration tool automatically signs the GDF binary with the digital certificate you provide.
