So we've discussed how to setup and configure PrintVerifier. But what are the recommended settings? Well, it really depends on whether you are a driver developer/tester or an application developer/tester.

If you are a driver developer or tester:

  • Enable Basics, PrintDriver and PrintAPI layers for:

    • PrintFilterPipelineSvc.exe (filter pipeline process)
    • Splwow64.exe (thunk process for wow64 printing)
    • All test executables that you have
