Chapter 4. Installing WinDriver

This chapter takes you through the process of installing WinDriver on your development platform, and shows you how to verify that your WinDriver is properly installed. The last section discusses the uninstall procedure. To find out how to install the driver you create on target platforms, refer to Chapter 11.
