Permissions on a DOSDEVICES device RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a driver which calls IoCreateSymbolicLink during DriverEntry so that it's visible in the real world.

    Problem is, when I CreateFile(L"\\\\.\\mydevice", ...) from a user mode application, I get ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED unless I run the program with administrative privileges.

    Can anyone point me at the function (family) I'm supposed to use to make this device accessible to non-administrative applications?
