A tool to generate Windows driver framework


QuickSYS is a quick tool to generate a device driver Framework for Windows NT/2K/XP/2K3/VISTA/2K8, supporting both 32 bit and 64 bit. It is currently at version 0.4.0.

Using the Code

It is simple to use. With just one mouse click, it will create a Visual C++ project. It supports VC6, VC2005, VC2008. You can edit your code, compile and link your device driver in Visual Studio IDE.

If you have SoftICE, it can generate a *.nms file.

Before you can compile your driver, you must have the Microsoft WDK or DDK or IFS installed.

After you have installed DDK, add an environment variable to your system. Right click My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Environment Variables. Click New under System variables. Type "BASEDIR" in Variable name. Type the root directory of your DDK in Variable value, e.g. C:\WINDDK\3790. If you are using WDK, type "WDKROOT" instead of "BASEDIR".

If you want to create a 64 bit driver, the easy way is check "Use VC2008 and WDK". Or you may need to add the x64 platform and change the lib directory. It's at Configuration Properties -> Linker -> General -> Additional Library Directories. Typically, it should be $(BASEDIR)\lib\wnet\amd64 for AMD64 or EM64T. Only VC2005 and higher version can compile and link a 64 bit driver.
