How to test

At compile time

Run Static Driver Verifier and specify the IrqlDispatch 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.

At run time

Run Driver Verifier and select the DDI compliance checking option.
