Device Parameters after Install/connection. RRS feed

  • Question

  • After installing a Mimaki cutter and plugging it in I tried finding the port address to use with CreateFile() but had no luck. Looking at the registry

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB\VID_0A50&PID_0001\Device Parameters there is nothing, no keys at all.

    So my question is should there be? This is a x64 system and I'm sure I downloaded and installed Mimaki's x64 version.

  • There is no guarantee that a driver writes its device or symbolic link name in the registry.  Looks like this is a printer like device, so I would imagine you would be using the print spooler APIs to talk to it
