How to install test simgpio driver in windows 8 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    Here is the sample to control GPIO from WDK sample code.

    I can build the sample on virtual studio 2012 and successfully sign the driver. 

    According the html page say that 

    Run the sample

    An INF file for each sample driver is provided in the same directory as the sample source. The instructions for how to install these drivers is the same as those given in the readme file for the WDM Toaster sample. Please follow the instructions for that sample.


    (1) I try to use "Add legacy Hardware", but there is no any driver I can select. 

    (2) I try to use devcon install simgpio.inf "ACPI/TEST1001", but windows 8 crash. 

    Could anyone tell me how to install the simgpio driver?
