13.4. Windows CE Dynamic Driver Loading

The WinDriver\redist\Windows_Mobile_5_ARMV4I\wdreg.exe utility can be used for loading the WinDriver kernel module (windrvr1230.dll) on a Windows CE platform.

On many versions of Windows CE, the operating system's security scheme prevents the loading of unsigned drivers at boot time, therefore the WinDriver kernel module has to be reloaded after boot. To load WinDriver on the target Windows CE platform every time the OS is started, copy the wdreg.exe utility to the Windows\StartUp directory on the target PC.

The source code of the Windows CE wdreg.exe utility is available under the WinDriver\samples\wince_install\wdreg directory on the development PC.
