WDF Verification

WDF Verification checks if a kernel-mode driver is following the Kernel-Mode Driver Framework (KMDF) requirements properly.

Failing this verification check will cause bug check 0x10D: WDF_VIOLATION.

Activating this option:

You can activate port/miniport interface checking for one or more drivers by using Driver Verifier Manager or the Verifier.exe command line. For details, see Selecting driver verifier options. You must restart the computer to activate or deactivate the port/miniport interface checking option.

  • At the command line

    At the command line, the port miniport interface checking is represented by 0x00100000. For example:

    verifier /flags 0x00100000 /driver MyDriver.sys

    The feature will be active after the next boot.
