Multiple drivers under same service name RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have query regarding driver service and driver objects.


    Device 1 : BasicDriver.sys (DeviceID : 0x2345) --> Servicename : BasicDriverService

    Device 2 : BasicDriver2.sys (DeviceID : 0x2346) --> Servicename : BasicDriverService.

    Can I install two drivers with same service name through inf file.

    Thanks in Advance,

  • Why do you want this?

  • You can, but you won't get what you want.  The order is non deterministic and the last install wins, there can only be one .sys for the service name so whichever device install writes last will overwrite the previous value.
