WHCK required compiler level /W4? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I anticipate the answer is yes, but am having trouble finding it in the various HCK documents and websites:  Do drivers submitted for certification need to be complied with /W4 ?

  • I don't know if there is a requirement, but as someone who has used /W4 on all drivers for over 10 years you would be stupid not to do it.  At the last DDC the WDF team told of finding a bug because they turned on /W4 but had not been able to find it with debugging.  This is one of those things like disabling PreFast filters that if you want a good driver you just do.
