Visual Studio 2015 Configuration Type Driver can't be selected RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a project to build a WDM (Legacy) driver. In the Project Properties, the Configuration Type was listed as Driver.

    I changed it to "Application" and now want to change it back to "Driver" but I can't. The "Configuration Type" drop-down menu does not have an option for "Driver"

  • Unfortunately creating an empty driver project leaves a lot of settings to be done manually.   I recommend that you look at a simple WDM driver project such as GENERAL\Event\wdm and edit the XML file to create a base project.  This way you get all the drive specific stuff setup for you.

  • Yes, I had to edit the XML file and change a couple of options. Would have thought that I should be able to do it from the GUI.
