Chapter 3. 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 14.

3.1. System Requirements

3.1.1. Windows System Requirements

  • Any x86 32-bit or 64-bit (x64: AMD64 or Intel EM64T) processor
  • Any compiler or development environment supporting C or .NET

3.1.2. Windows 10 IoT Core System Requirements

WinDriver supports driver development for the Windows 10 IoT Core operating system. Please note that Windows 10 IoT Enterprise is a full version of Windows 10, so the regular WinDriver for Windows desktop / server can be used for those OSes.
  • WinDriver must be installed on a development computer running a desktop version of Windows, in order to use DriverWizard.
  • A network connection allowing an SSH session with the target computer.

3.1.3. Linux System Requirements

  • Any of the following processor architectures, with a 2.6.x or higher Linux kernel:
    • 32-bit x86
    • 64-bit x86 AMD64 or Intel EM64T (x86_64)
    Jungo strives to support new Linux kernel versions as close as possible to their release.
    To find out the latest supported kernel version, refer to the WinDriver release notes (found online at
  • A GCC compiler
    The version of the GCC compiler should match the compiler version used for building the running Linux kernel.
  • Any 32-bit or 64-bit development environment (depending on your target configuration) supporting C for user mode
  • On your development PC: glibc2.14.x (or newer)
  • The following libraries are required for running GUI WinDriver application (e.g., DriverWizard [4]; Debug Monitor  [6.2]):
