Setting a Copy-File Flag to Support PnP Stop

Last Updated: 2/14/2017

A new copy-file flag is required for display drivers that are written to the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) in order to properly support Plug and Play (PnP) stop (that is, driver upgrades that don't require a system restart).

Note This flag is required only for user-mode display driver binaries and not for display miniport drivers.

The following example shows the new copy-file flag that is added to just the copy-file section for user-mode display drivers and not display miniport drivers:

;
; File sections
;

[r200.Miniport]
r200.sys

[r200.Display]
r200umd.dll,,,0x00004000  ; COPYFLG_IN_USE_TRY_RENAME
r200umd2.dll,,,0x00004000 ; COPYFLG_IN_USE_TRY_RENAME

For more information about the CopyFiles directive and file sections that are associated with CopyFiles, see INF CopyFiles Directive.
