Kernel Mode Driver

Postby Ward » Tue Sep 24, 2013 9:38 pm

Right, I need to code a kernel mode driver.

The business I work for has a piece of hardware which has really old drivers, with source, but needs me to update it for newer OSes. KMD is required because the IO and calculation is extremely time sensitive and is not at all willing to put up with typical MS OS crap like 'updates' or 'user input', etc.

Simple? Fuck no.

I have C,C++ experience but only on chips. Very little on bigger stuff.

Anyone have experience?

Never done any Windows programming myself, other than JavaScript for my websites so I doubt I'd be able to help. Sorry.
The last proper programming I did was in DOS Turbo C++ :)

Ward - plenty of experience in writing Linux Kernel stuff, but nothing in Windows, sorry. How'd it go in the end?

Haven't even started.

Either I subconciously posted this thread waay ahead of schedule or I'm a lazy bastard. Who knows?



We (me and team) have an existing solution which uses a KM driver to bitbash a piece of truly ancient hardware for a bunch of our clients who do not want to take part in the technology boom this side of the millenium. We're looking at various ways to update the KM driver for newer OSes, replace it entirely or in part with a microcontroller (but most aren't fast enough and the one that are don't let you because of reasons) or even a custom digital circuit - after all, it just needs to bitbash the same bits on a millisecond schedule over and over again.
