Trouble Ahead- Trouble Behind

Sometimes the test discipline is all about trouble- other times, it's just troubling.

  • Blog Post: New WdfVerifier docs are live!

    I redesigned most of the UI for this WDK tool and did some fairly major surgery to the internals in support of that for Windows 8.1 WDK- and then completely neglected the WDK documentation for it. Thanks to some good work by Ted Hudek from our documentation team, that oversight of mine's been corrected...
  • Blog Post: Generic and Mundane

    This week has been a bit of fun for me. After the USB simulation infrastructure I started to write about in my last post - and never got close to finishing the description of, I began working on my dream test setup, for use in some work I knew was coming. The core concept for me was to have a context...
  • Blog Post: USB that isn't USB

    The span of time between the time when a version of Windows is "finished" and when the next version's planning and execution effort is both precious and fleeting. It's often the time when I do all those projects I've been wanting to do but couldn't justify based upon the needs of the prior product. This...

    I should finish up at least an overview of what I built for a hardware simulation infrastructure during Win8, so here goes... A root- and what a root it is At the core of everything, and essential to it all- is my "QA root bus" driver. It acts as a replacement for the kernel's Pnp root driver ...
  • Blog Post: Simulation Adventures- Architecture and Packaging

    Well, today, as I babysit a new simulator I'm integrating into one of my older WDF test suites, I'll tell you about how I put together what I refer to as my "simulation infrastructure". First choice to make- where does the simulation happen? I don't mean user versus kernel- because obviously something...
  • Blog Post: Simulating is stimulating

    Well, now that the Windows 8 cat is mostly out of the bag, I shall start talking about a recent project of mine that interests me and might be interesting to others. Several of the changes or new features in WDF, most notably the ability of UMDF drivers to access hardware and for KMDF to utilize the...
