The Windows 2000 Device Driver Book can lead any experienced Windows programmer through every step of device driver development: planning, implementation, testing, debugging, installation, and distribution. Thoroughly updated to reflect Microsoft's Windows Driver Model (WDM) for Windows 2000 and 98, it covers everything from architecture to tools, and includes a powerhouse library of exclusive tools and C and C++ code for streamlining device driver projects. Starting with a high-level overview of WDM components, the book quickly moves into the details of the development environment and driver installation. Master the I/O Manager, its data structures, and its interaction with drivers. Understand Plug and Play and Power Management through extensive practical examples; learn how to construct safe reentrant driver code; log errors and events using Windows Management Instrumentation; utilize kernel-mode threads; layered drivers; and more.

This book explains the Windows Driver architecture, and presents insights into a myriad of pracical details that are rarely documented. Includes coverage of the Win32 Driver model which allows developers to create a single driver for NT and Windows 98.From the Publisher:
The most comprehensive, authoritative guide to Windows NT driver development. Now that Windows NT is rapidly becoming the business operating system of choice, more and more programmers are faced with developing Windows NT drivers. This book explains the complex Windows driver architecture, and presents insights into a myriad of practical details that are rarely, if ever, documented. It clarifies the murky Microsoft Driver Documentation Kit (DDK) documentation, and contains extensive detail missing from the DDK. This information is essential now, and will prepare developers for the future, when Microsoft introduces the common Win32 Driver Model for Windows NT and Windows 95. Learn about the NT I/O Manager and its data structures, and discover how various hardware issues impact driver design. Learn about full-duplex driver architecture, techniques for handling time-out conditions, logging device errors, kernel-model threads, higher-level drivers, and class drivers for SCSI devices. Understand how to set up a driver development environment and analyze crash dumps. Includes extensive sample code on diskette, designed specifically to help streamline development projects. For all Windows programmers who have a role in writing device drivers.
