Installing Device Drivers

I have written a devide driver from a sample and was able to build it.

I need to know how to:
-build a inf file for my device driver
-install the device driver
-view the output from dbgPrint

1. DDK contains INF file reference. See "Creating an INF File".

DDK sample has inf file for each sample, and inf file templates in the src\setup\infs directory.
Read about inf files in the books:
The Windows 2000 Device Driver Book, A Guide for Programmers, Art Baker and Jerry Lozano
Programming the Microsoft Windows Driver Model, Walter Oney.

Instead of inf file you can write your own installation program. See this example: http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/ctrl2cap.shtml

2. If you have inf file, use Windows Hardware Wizard (Add New Hardware) to install it. If you have custom installation program, run it.

3. http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/debugview.shtml

This utility shows debug output both from user and kernel mode. To enable kernel mode capture, open Capture menu.
