QuestionRestarting a Windows PC after driver installation Pin
Daniel Pfeffer29-Apr-19 2:12
professionalDaniel Pfeffer29-Apr-19 2:12 
I have written a Windows device driver that updates the firmware on a certain device, via Windows Update. The sequence of operations is as follows:
  • The driver is downloaded from Windows Update, and scheduled for installation
  • The PC is rebooted (either by the user, or at the Windows idle time)
  • During restart, the firmware is downloaded to the device
  • An additional reboot is required in order to program the firmware into the device
It is this last step that I cannot get working. Other than writing some sort of application that requests the user to reboot the system after the driver is installed (error-prone, and inelegant), is there a way for the device driver to tell Windows that a reboot is required?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
