    Historic talk.  Someday I will be telling my grandkids about how we used  to write drivers and I'll be able to tell them that I was at the session where it all changed for the better. Thank you.

    Great session.

    Being able to VS to build device driver is cool.

    BTW: Does it exist a special build of the STL library that can be used for drivers? Seems that you ban C++ exceptions in driver code; would STL work if it throws SEH exceptions instead of C++ exceptions? Will such a version of STL be available in VC11?



  • Very good session and Doron always Rocks...

    But no talk about co-installer? Now onwords we dont have to provide co-installer with driver:)
