Congratulations! You have successfully installed PATCHED WDK 6000 for Vista. You can now use it to create and debug Windows drivers for Vista and later versions of Windows. For more information on how to use the WDK, you can refer to this page[^1^].How to Use WDK 6000
After you have installed PATCHED WDK 6000 for Vista, you can use it to create and debug Windows drivers for Vista and later versions of Windows. You can use Visual Studio 2008 or later as your integrated development environment (IDE) or use the command-line tools provided by the WDK.
To use Visual Studio with the WDK, you need to create a driver project or solution and configure it with the appropriate settings for your target platform and driver type. You can use the WDK templates to create a new driver project or solution, or you can import an existing driver project or solution from a previous version of the WDK. You can also customize your project or solution properties to specify additional options such as preprocessor definitions, include directories, linker options, and so on.
To build your driver, you need to select a configuration that matches your target platform and driver type. For example, if you want to build a KMDF driver for x64 Windows Vista, you need to select the WinVista x64 Free configuration. You can then use the Build menu in Visual Studio to build your driver project or solution. The WDK will invoke the appropriate tools and generate the output files such as .sys, .inf, .pdb, and so on.
To debug your driver, you need to set up a debugging environment that consists of a host computer and a target computer. The host computer runs Visual Studio and the debugger tools, while the target computer runs the driver that you want to debug. You can connect the two computers using a serial cable, a USB cable, a network cable, or a FireWire cable. You can also use a virtual machine as the target computer.
To start debugging your driver, you need to configure the debugger settings in Visual Studio and deploy your driver to the target computer. You can use the Debug menu in Visual Studio to attach to the target computer and start debugging your driver. You can use the debugger commands and windows to control the execution of your driver, set breakpoints, examine variables, view call stacks, and so on.
