Apps making call to device when updating driver RRS feed

  • Question

  • Some apps are making calls to device when I'm updating the driver, this causes the device to crash.

    I'm a driver developer, what can be done to avoid this from driver side? Some thing like "hide" the device until driver update / install is done?

  • for a driver update to work all handles to the driver must be closed and then the driver can be unloaded. same as disable. Your driver can't force handles to be closed. Quite the opposite, your driver needs to work assuming user mode is not behaving correctly. you need to fix the driver.
