Debugging a sensor driver with Microsoft Visual Studio
Sensor drivers are based on the Windows Driver Frameworks (WDF) – User-Mode Driver Framework (UMDF) platform. UMDF drivers provide more stability and security than kernel-mode drivers, while providing comparable performance. UMDF drivers also let you use user-mode debuggers, such as Microsoft Visual Studio 2012. Debugging a driver in user mode is faster than debugging in kernel-mode, because an error affects only the current process instead of the whole computer.
