Installing NDIS Protocol Drivers and Deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to deploy the NDIS 6.0 Sample Protocol Driver, but I could not manage it.
    What are the basic protocol drivers installation steps??
    First install the service with SCM or "net create ..." and then register the service using INetCfg?
    I managed to install the driver in the host machine but not by deployment.
    The installation of the package fails... is it due to the lack of the INetCfg registering?

  • Yes,  deployment by Visual Studio does not support some kinds of drivers. Just install manually, as you already do.

  • If I install the driver manually in a target computer, is it possible to run the debug in a host machine?
    I tried this, but maybe not correctly. If it is possible, what details should I watch out for?

  • Yes it should be possible, just put some breakpoints. But it may be easier and quicker to get going with Windbg. The VS-based kernel debugger still has some wrinkles.
