NdisMDeregisterAdapterShutdownHandler removes a NIC driver-supplied MiniportShutdown function from the list of registered shut-down handlers to be called.

Syntax

VOID NdisMDeregisterAdapterShutdownHandler(
  _In_ NDIS_HANDLE MiniportHandle
);

Parameters

Return value

None

Remarks

A miniport driver that called NdisMRegisterAdapterShutdownHandler from MiniportInitialize must call NdisMDeregisterAdapterShutdownHandler when it is cleaning up the resources it allocated before being unloaded.

MiniportInitialize should also call NdisMDeregisterAdapterShutdownHandler if the driver has already registered the MiniportShutdown function but MiniportInitialize will fail the initialization.

Requirements

Target platform

Universal

Version

Not supported for NDIS 6.0 drivers in Windows Vista. Use NdisMDeregisterMiniportDriverinstead. Supported for NDIS 5.1 drivers in Windows Vista and Windows XP.
