WFP registration objects RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I register a boot-time and persistent version of my filters as outlined here:


    I notice that the GUIDs for the boot-time filters appear twice in the registry, in the following locations ({Guid} being the GUID of my boot-time filter):



    Whereas the persistent filters only show in the Persistent\Filter path.

    Is this expected behavior or is the proposed method of registering both boot-time and persistent filters in the link above incorrect?  Why are the objects stored twice?

  • This is by design.  All boot-time objects are persistent.  Not all persistent objects are boot-time.  You need to add another persistent filter only if you want the filter to remain effective immediately after boot-time.

    Hope this helps,
