How to load a TDI device driver without a reboot?

I have developed a TDI device driver, which is dependent on tcpip
I want to load it after it is installed, but without having to reboot the system.

Is that possible?

I tried using CreateService as in the code snippet but I get error 487 (invalid address).
//Create the driver "service"
		SC_HANDLE  SCService = CreateServiceW(schSCManager,
			 L"tcpipMyTDI desc.",
			 isOsTypeVista() ? L"Tdx\0" : L"tcpip\0",

Open in new window

Ok, found the issue,
Registry must be clean, so no entry shoudl exist for the driver.

Location, HKLM\system\CurrentControlSet\Services
