I'm trying to build a kernel driver using VS11 Developer Preview and WDK 8. Things go smoothly but I cannot install the driver. I get "Index was outside the bounds of the array" when i go through Driver\Device Metadata\Authoring, and "Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date" if i go through the Device manager manually. Can anyone point me to the right direction?

I'm able to build driver samples, and i can install the \src\hid\vhidmini but i still cannot install the src\input\kbfiltr driver. When i try to do so, i always get "Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date", maybe the INF file is for Win7 or lower.
Regarding to the "Index was outside the bounds of the array" error, I discover that this will be raised if i do not select a "Locale Default" when i try to authorize the driver.

Sorry for bringing this up again, but i still have problem with the kbfiltr project.
I build it successfully using Window Developer Preview\x64 settings, but when i install it, i always get "Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date". If i ignore the warning and follow this link, i can install the driver. However, when i restart, my keyboard ceases to work. The same thing happens with moufiltr project. Is the WDK8 not completed? Is there any solution to my problem?
Thursday, March 01, 2012 6:37 PMWindows will always default to a signed and certified package, which a driver under development typically isn't. Go into Device manager, select update for the target driver and then take the manual path, do NOT let the system do the searching. Tell it you have an install disk and then navigate to the folder with your inf file.

Have you enabled test signing mode on the deployment machine? You should pick up the Consumer Preview Beta and samples, and use the built-in capability in Visual Studio to deploy the driver to a test machine.
