Chapter 6. Debugging Drivers
The following sections describe how to debug your hardware-access application
Since WinDriver is accessed from the user mode, we recommend that you first
debug your code using your standard debugging software.
The Debug Monitor utility [6.2] logs debug messages from
WinDriver's kernel-mode and user-mode APIs. You can also use WinDriver APIs to
send your own debug messages to the Debug Monitor log.
When using WinDriver's API (such as
WD_Transfer() — see the
WinDriver PCI Low-Level API Reference), to read/write memory ranges on the card in the kernel,
while the Debug Monitor [6.2] is activated, WinDriver's
kernel module validates the memory ranges, i.e., it verifies that the
reading/writing from/to the memory is in the range that is defined for the
Use DriverWizard to check values of memory and registers in the debugging
