  • Hi All,

    This is not a question regarding any issue.All i want is information of driver programming from Driver Developers.
    My next Project is in Driver development and I do not know anything about Driver development.
    My last project was in C#.net but I have good knowledge of c,c++.
    My kindly request to all Driver Developers is to provide me material and information about Driver development.
    As I am fresher entering into driver development please guide me from basic.

    Thanks in advance.....

  • This is a question that is closer to asking "I want to program a computer, how do I do it".   A lot of your question depends on what type of device (if there is a device), what type of driver (may depend on the device) and which Windows versions you are interested in.   I would start by working your way through the information at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/windows/hardware/gg490655

    You will need the WDK and for the latest WDK Visual Studio 2012 (at least Professional level).  Get the samples for the WDK http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowshardware/Windows-8-Driver-Samples-5e1aa62e

  • Well for XP you need the Windows 7 WDK.  Take a look at the wifi samples in the WDK as a start.
