Kernel Mode Driver Framework Runtime RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm currently having latency problems while running a program I use for djing (Traktor). I've run latency test and the main problem comes from this Kernel Mode Driver Framework Runtime which is checking high maximum latency rates and I would like tu disable it if posible.
    I've done some research but haven't found what is this driver's use.

    Anyone knows what is this driver for? Can I disable it without generating any problems? How?

    >>I'm currently having latencyproblems while running a program

    Is your program build with .NET Framework?

    >>Anyone knows what is this driver for?

    Information about Kernel Mode Driver Framework Runtime, link below is the KB link.

    It depends on whether your application has used the functions provided by the driver.

  • The USB 3.0 driver stack on Windows 8 requires Kernel Mode Driver Framework, so you'll lose USB3 if you somehow manage to disable KMDF. No doubt Microsoft is expanding the use of KMDF in other drivers as well.

    If you're asking about drivers, I think the WDK forum is more appropriate than the CLR forum.
