WdfDriverGetRegistryPath function (wdfdriver.h)

[Applies to KMDF and UMDF]

The WdfDriverGetRegistryPath method retrieves the path to the driver's registry key in the registry's Services tree.

Syntax

PWSTR WdfDriverGetRegistryPath(
  WDFDRIVER Driver
);

Parameters

Driver

[in] A handle to the driver's framework driver object, obtained by a previous call to WdfDriverCreate or WdfGetDriver.

Return value

Remarks

The registry path string that WdfDriverGetRegistryPath returns is obtained from the UNICODE_STRING structure that the driver received as input to its DriverEntry routine.
