Learning how to create drivers has always been extremely difficult for developers, partly due to the poorly documented driver development kit and tools that Microsoft has supplied to the public. Many vendors, too, have kept their drivers secret to maintain market share. DriverStudio 3.0 from Compuware, however, supports the complete driver development cycle, including optimization and extensive testing for certification. Its Visual SoftICE tool is a two-machine solution that surpasses all other debugging tools. The suite also includes the BoundsChecker tool for validating driver integrity dynamically at runtime. None of the tools in DriverStudio 3.0 require changing between binary files and code, and all work on the drivers as-is.
