migrate VXD driver to W2000/NT/XP
Posted on 2002-06-15
I have inherited some code which uses CreateFile on
a *.vxd file and then does a bunch of DeviceIOControl calls. This is to read a compact flash card that is in an adaptor in a PCMCIA slot. Works on W98.
Since *.vxd is not supported on W2000/NT/XP I need to find a way to get this going. How, in general, do people migrate from *.vxd technology to the modern OS's?
I guess now one needs a 'kernel mode driver'?
I'm not a driver writer, so am I looking at a nightmare?
