Deleting an Interrupt Object


UMDF 2 is the latest version of UMDF and supersedes UMDF 1. All new UMDF drivers should be written using UMDF 2. No new features are being added to UMDF 1 and there is limited support for UMDF 1 on newer versions of Windows 10. Universal Windows drivers must use UMDF 2.

For more info, see Getting Started with UMDF.

If the driver creates an interrupt object by calling IWDFDevice3::CreateInterrupt, the driver does not need to delete the interrupt object. The framework deletes the interrupt object automatically because the interrupt object is a child object of the framework device object.

The framework uses the following rules:

Optionally, the driver can call IWDFObject::DeleteWdfObject to delete an interrupt object at any time. Because a driver cannot create a new interrupt object outside of OnDeviceAdd or OnPrepareHardware, manual deletion of the object should not be used unless the driver must remove the object before the framework deletes it.
