Back from the Windows Device Drivers talk

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 5:54 PM

Interesting talk, gave me a lot of pointers on what to talk and what not to talk about on Wednesday. Lecture slides available here (zippped .ps) and code samples here. Very rough notes available here, to be cleaned up and reposted as time permits.


  1. 1) Microsoft’s Windows DDK is indeed free.
    2) The Kernel in W2K and up is indeed unicode. Structs with strings hold unicode strings. you have to treat them as wide chars. I didn’t know that, and only found out when my debug message printed just the first character of the string I tried to copy…
    Sounds like it was a very good lecture. I hope yours will go well.

  2. I have not looked at the notes, but it does sound interesting. Ok, I gotta get back to my uml drawing. I really hate doing this.
