  • Get Vistual Studion 2012 (professional or higher) and the Windows 8 WDK and SDK.  Then get the Windows 8 driver samples from Microsoft see http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowshardware and start studying the HID samples.  The good news is this is all KMDF or UMDF so you don't have to go into the older WDM model.
