1 1. Download and install the Windows Driver Framework SDK (6001 is all
2 that is supported now) from Microsoft. You have to jump through a few
3 hoops to get it, but it is free (as in beer of course. Microsoft don't
4 do the 'as in speech' variety of free). It's also huge.
5 is a good place
6 to start.
7 is probably a
8 better place to start.
10 2. Download and install the Nullsoft Installer from
13 3. Use Mercurial (get it from
14 to get
15 the latest sources from
18 4. From the top directory, type 'makedist', which will build the drivers
19 for all architectures. If the build fails, then you probably don't have
20 exactly the 6001.17121 that i'm using. Edit set_ddk_path.bat and do a
21 'makedist' again.
23 5. Assuming all went well, your drivers should be in target/<os>/<arch>
24 directory. (<os> is win2k, winxp, winnet and winlh, arch is i386 and
25 amd64). "Xen PV Drivers <version>.exe" should also be created which is
26 the nsis installer.
