I’m not actually doing anything special during the create and close commands, but I provided code stubs in case any readers fiter to add their own caller-specific initialization code.

Sending IOCTLs to Windows NT Drivers | Dr Dobb’s

Otherwise, filtwr function fails in unpredictable ways. In WdjDrvUnloadI simply delete the symbolic link and the device object that I created when the driver was initialized. Use the other CreateFile parameters as follows when opening a device handle: Sign up using Email and Password. Most Popular Stories Blogs. Please read our commenting policy.

NT device deviceiocontgol respond to a simple filtre of file-oriented commands: Post as a guest Name. For my target driver I chose the standard Windows NT floppy driver, because nearly all computers have at least one floppy device and the consequences of accidently sending an errant command to the floppy driver are not usually catastrophic.


The Sample Driver The sample driver code is in wdj. I copy a Boolean value to the user-mode application’s buffer to let them know whether or not a floppy is present in this floppy drive.

For more information, see Remarks. DeviceIoControl can accept a handle to a specific device.

It is much simpler and safer in this case to get a pointer to the device object, build an IRP, and send it to the driver when necessary. However, when you open a communications resource, such as a serial port, you must specify exclusive access.

Note that since this is an “OEM” device rather than a standard device type defined by the operating systemI must use a value in the range 0x to 0xFFFF.

If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Call application from deviceioocontrol driver.

I need to create a symbolic link between my device object and a name that is visible to user-mode applications by calling IoCreateSymbolicLink. Deviceioconrol pointer to the input buffer that contains the data required to perform the operation. You should be able to experiment with this sample driver on your own system.
