This code includes the EvtDeviceAdd section of the previous code and additional code, included in bold, that is necessary to process write requests. In terms of processing the completion routine, things are fairly standard with one minor “gotcha” that shouldn’t be new to anyone who has been using the framework for a while.

UsbSamp Demonstrates how to use the framework to perform bulk and isochronous data transfers to a USB device. It’s definitely a great thing when you can write a filter driver skeleton with a full PnP state machine in 99 lines of code. For some technologies, there might not be any recommendation for a filter driver model. As everyone who has tried installing a real driver this way knows, very little of the INF is actually processed.

The automatic passing of any requests fiter your driver does not handle to the next driver. It’s hard to complain too much about this, so I’ll only complain a little.

Creating Device Objects in a Filter Driver – Windows drivers | Microsoft Docs

Sign up using Email and Password. This requires a few extra steps than the code included above, but nothing that should be too shocking for those already familiar with the framework. For example, you might choose the Filter Driver: At this point, you have a driver project that implements the general code required by most KMDF drivers. I really would have preferred a more intuitive way to indicate to the framework that I was done with the request. Your underlying WDM device object’s DeviceType, Characteristics, and Flags fields being properly set based on the device to which you’re attached.


Setting a completion routine in a request is only slightly more annoying than doing a “send and forget” operation. Deciding that you didn’t want to be demand start and flipping the bits in the registry to make yourself boot start doesn’t filer as well as expected which is to say, “didn’t work at all for me”. Browse the list of installed iflter to see whether there is a template for the type of filter you need to write.

Trust me, you’ll probably need it. In order to do this you need to make a modification to your DeviceInit structure before iflter create your filter device in your EvtDeviceAdd callback. The first missing feature was printing the completion status of the requests. Next, determine which of the following cases describes your driver model recommendation and follow the steps:. FakeModem Demonstrates filtet simple controllerless modem driver that sends and receives AT commands.

For many, but not all, of the various callbacks that you register for, the framework makes you responsible for either completing the request in your filter or passing the request to the next device.

Creating a New Filter Driver

Even though I’m only using this filter as a one-off, I still want it to be correct. You may also leave feedback directly on GitHub. This makes writing a WDM filter from scratch time consuming because the first thing you need to do is write the boilerplate code for the “correct default” behavior trivial for most requests, but not necessarily for PnP. Post as a guest Name. Our new feedback system is built on GitHub Issues. This indicates to the framework that your device is indeed a filter and results in all sorts of great things being done for you.


Refer to the documentation for your technology to learn about the functions that you need to implement. Make sure you’re set to boot start.

For some technologies, there might not be any recommendation for a filter driver model. Because the differences between the callbacks are negligible, I will only show the code for the write callback Figure 4.

This will print out some diagnostics that might be helpful. Filter drivers are different from lmdf function drivers, software drivers, and file system drivers, which we cover in other topics.

I typically install my class filters using a simple INF file filtrr on diskperf. Enable SR and create a restore point. To begin, first determine which driver model is appropriate for your filter driver.

ECHO Demonstrates how to use the framework’s queue and request objects and automatic synchronization. At this point, you have a driver project that implements the general code required by most UMDF drivers.

But, I’m getting a bit ahead of myself
