Driver Debugging: RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying this sample here:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/hh439665(v=vs.85).aspx

    When I get to the last step, my Immediate Output Window always says "Debuggee Is Running".  Hitting "Break All" does nothing...as such, I can never use the KD command prompt.

    Computer Info - 

    • Host: Windows 7 x64
    • Target: Windows 8.1 x64
    • Both physical machines, no VMs

    What gives?

    Can this be fixed?  

    Is this a known bug, or other?

    What are other people doing to debug their drivers?

  • What is the debug physical connection? 

    The symptoms you are describing suggest that no connection has been made to the target system. 

    FYI, and this is my opinion only, using the automated deploy and test facility in Visual Studio is fine when it works but very difficult to repair when it doesn't. Most of us "dinosaurs" continue to use manual debug setup and the standalone debugger "windbg".
