  • Blog Post: Where have you been?!

    Well, as you could probably guess, I haven't had much to say for a while for a couple of reasons - first and foremost, the Windows 8 product cycle was really intense. A lot of changes under the hood came down the pipe, so with the big additions to WDF (UMDF especially) we really had a ton of work to...
  • Blog Post: You’ve had the time, let’s hear the feedback.

    I hope those of you who are using the new Visual Studio 2011 with the WDK integration are having some fun, even if it’s just been wandering around and playing.  What, if anything, are you not liking about it?  Anything that’s unintuitive or confusing?  What do you like about it, but would...
  • Blog Post: Well, you can kind of see why we’ve been quiet around here…

    If you’re watching what’s going on at //BUILD (and why wouldn’t you be?), you may have seen that UMDF now supports hardware access (via ports and registers) and interrupt handling! If you haven’t seen it, you can go read more here . And the other big one. Something I’ve...
  • Blog Post: Housekeeping

    There have been a couple of asks recently, in various forums, on how to build drivers using Visual Studio. I thought since I had shown you how to make better use of Visual Studio as an IDE for driver writing , I better share the last yard of how people are integrating the WDK build environment(s) in...
  • Blog Post: Intellisense, the Musical part 3

    Like all good stories, sometimes the 2nd act is the hardest to follow. In this case it was simply a matter of other things coming up rather than writers block. :) What kicked me in the rump to get this next part up was a few more questions about driver writing, WDK integration into Visual Studio and...
  • Blog Post: It's all in the wrists

    I got a few interesting questions recently, which was helpful because I was having a tough time finding good material for you guys and gals of late. That's the problem with working on the next Operating System, I can't tell you about all the cool stuff yet. *g* So here's today's question (in two parts...
  • Blog Post: Sara Ford's WebLog : Microsoft Visual Studio Tips Book Helps Hurricane Katrina Survivors Rebuild Lives

    Seriously, Sara rocks for doing this. Sara Ford's WebLog : Microsoft Visual Studio Tips Book Helps Hurricane Katrina Survivors Rebuild Lives   I know quite a few of you use Visual Studio, and if nothing else, you should keep an eye on her blog for tips and tricks.  Sure, sure, not all of them...
  • Blog Post: How to jiggle the handle(s) and get your 1.7 to work in Vista

    As people who write drivers are something of a rare breed, I know we probably share a lot of common readers between our Driver blogs and via the OSR boards, but just in case the three or four of you who read my blog haven't seen this, I wanted to make sure it got out there. We had a bit of a stumble...
  • Blog Post: I owe you all a large, humongous apology

    Work and home work have prevented me from completing the 2nd part of the Intellisense Musical. I had asked my wife if I could have Saturday to work on it, and of course after the trip to Lowes for paint supplies and spending hours with her setting things up and answering questions, it was time for me...
  • Blog Post: I never promised you a rose garden, but I did promise Act 2 of a Musical

    And I'm sad to say that I won't have it ready this weekend. I'll work on it next week I promise. In the mean time, how about we write a kernel in a Managed Language eh? So cool to see they have some proof of concepts going. *Currently playing - Living Colour, Open Letter (to a Landlord)
  • Blog Post: Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

    Peter's a topic stealing stealer person. So rather than pout about how he's stolen my thunder, I'll just add some lightning for effect. I'm a fan of the closing paren' being on the line with the last value. Not on its own line. I mean what does this really buy you? hr = m_Device->GetFxDevice()->CreateIoQueue...
  • Blog Post: VS Driver Intellisense: the Musical - Act 1 (of 3..or 4, maybe).

    I was looking at the various ways I have my Visual Studio environment(s) setup and its behavior really depends on what I'm doing. So I figured I'd just do a series of how I have it all setup, and you guys / gals can use which one works the best for your needs. The easiest method is to create a "default...
  • Blog Post: Apr(grave)es Post, les Deluge**

    I would like to make one small clarification to Ilias' post here, I don't have the local WDK integrated in to Visual Studio 200 n Help environment. It's merely using the online WDK as I press F1 or do a relevant search. As Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 default to using online MSDN for all help references...
  • Blog Post: Intellisense-ational!

    After reading Ilias' post about Intellisense lacking for driver projects, I first thought about running upstairs and throwing a few more quarters at him. Then I thought about making a snarky response in his blog post. But in the end, I just decided to show him up; That looks a lot like Intellisense...
  • Blog Post: How can I a be a bandwagoner, when I was already here?

    Unlike Doron , I've been using Visual Studio exclusively since I first started working here (many, many years ago...), I've experienced the bumps, bangs and sometimes dead thuds along the way, but I've never used anything else for my code creation. I was ridiculed and mocked during the early days, but...
