This chapter takes you through the WinDriver driver development cycle.
If you are using an enhanced-support PCI device
(PLX 6466, 9030, 9050, 9052, 9054, 9056, 9080 and
9656; Altera Qsys design; Xilinx BMD design; Xilinx XDMA design), you may want to use the related WinDriver sample as the
basis for your development instead of generating code with DriverWizard.
Note that for devices based on the
Altera Qsys design, Xilinx BMD design or Xilinx XDMA design, you can use DriverWizard to
generate customized device-specific code, which utilizes the
enhanced-support sample APIs.

That is all you need to do in order to create your user-mode driver.
If you discover that better performance is needed, refer to
