Installation Instructions

Running the provided installer for VisualDDK is enough to setup the debugging environment on your machine. However, if you want to use the VisualDDK Launcher to launch your driver on remote machine, you should copy the target/(platform)/DDKLaunchMonitor.exe file from VisualDDK directory to your debugged machine, and launch it there. Please also ensure that your firewall allows sending TCP and UDP packets to the machine being debugged.

Note that if you are using VirtualBox or VMWare for debugging, you can speed up driver debugging by using VirtualKD instead of the usual virtual COM port. Just copy target\vminstall.exe from VisualDDK folder to your virtual machine, run it from there and let it restart your VM. Afterwards, select the Virtual Machine itself instead of a named pipe in VisualDDK launcher. You can also use vminstall.exe /AUTO /REBOOT for unattended installation.

Note that you also need to install the updated VirtualBox DLL. See this page for more details.
