Windows 10 netcfg error 0x80071a2d uninstalling an NDIS LWF RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a NDIS 6 Light Weight Filter driver (V6.3)
    that we are testing with Windows 10 (Build 10130).

    Using netcfg to install the driver runs as expected
    (i.e. bind to adapters, processes packets, processes
    IOCTL messages).

    Using netcfg to uninstall, the driver encounters an
    error that does not occur on Window 8/8.1.

    When "netcfg /v /u <comp id>" is run, netcfg reports:
      Trying to uninstall <comp id>
      ... failed. Error code: 0x80071a2d.
    (Error 0x80071a2d is ERROR_TRANSACTION_NOT_ACTIVE)

    Note that
    1. The driver is unloaded.
    2. The registry key for the service is removed
       (HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\<service name>)
    3. The LWF service still appears in the list of protocols/services
       in the "Ethernet Properties" window.
    When "netcfg /v /u <comp id>" is run a second time, netcfg reports:
      Trying to uninstall <comp id>
      ... done.
    Now the service is removed from the "Ethernet Properties" list.

    Has anyone else encountered a similar using uninstalling a LWF
    on Windows 10?

  • That's a known issue in that preview build of Windows 10.  Nothing is wrong with your INF; we're working to correct it on our end.
