INF SharedDriver Entry



Before the keyboard or mouse class installer installs a PS/2 device, it checks for a SharedDriver entry in the INF ControlFlags section for the device. If such an entry value exists, the class installer notifies the user by displaying the warning text string, and provides the user the option to cancel changing the PS/2 port driver.

Entries and Values


Specifies that the device driver is shared by both a PS/2 keyboard and mouse device.
