DriverCreate rule (kmdf)

The DriverCreate rule specifies that a driver that uses Kernel Mode Driver Framework (KMDF) must call the WdfDriverCreate method to create a framework driver object from within its DriverEntry routine.

How to test

At compile time

Run Static Driver Verifier and specify the DriverCreate rule.

Use the following steps to run an analysis of your code:
  1. Prepare your code (use role type declarations).
  2. Run Static Driver Verifier.
  3. View and analyze the results.

For more information, see Using Static Driver Verifier to Find Defects in Drivers.
