CtlDeviceFinishInitDeviceAdd rule (kmdf)

The CtlDeviceFinishInitDeviceAdd rule specifies that if a driver creates control device object in an EvtDriverDeviceAdd callback function, it must call WdfControlFinishInitializing after the device has been created and before it exits from the EvtDriverDeviceAdd callback function. This rule does not apply for non-PnP drivers.

How to test

At compile time

Run Static Driver Verifier and specify the CtlDeviceFinishInitDeviceAdd rule.

Use the following steps to run an analysis of your code:
  1. Prepare your code (use role type declarations).
  2. Run Static Driver Verifier.
  3. View and analyze the results.
