View Thread: How to call driver IOCTL from Windows Service?

    There is no limitation that services cannot access files. There must be something else different between your service and your standalone .exe.

    If you were getting ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED (5) instead of ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND (2) I would suspect a permissions issue, but this seems to be a case of trying to open a device that isn't there.
