  • Do you mean WdfDeviceCreate versus WdfDeviceMiniportCreate?  If so the WdfDeviceMiniportCreate recognizes that the miniport is its own framework and allows you to use WDF calls in the miniport.  If you tried to use WdfDeviceCreate it and the calls to the miniport to set things up would conflict.
