    Need help compiling driver

    I'm trying to recompile a driver so that it will work on my 64-bit machine, I have the source, but I'm guessing I need a ddk due to the fact my c++ compiler wont compile it, any ideas?

    It is written in C so I'm guessing this is in the wrong spot, sorry, admin, can you move this please?

    You're not supposed to bump threads, especially not three times in a row.

    Well, you were kind of vague:
    I'm trying to recompile a driver so that it will work on my 64-bit machine, I have the source, but I'm guessing I need a ddk due to the fact my c++ compiler wont compile it, any ideas?
    Save it as a .c file. What compiler are you using? Is the source C99?

    We can't help much with the given information.

    Ok, I'm trying to compile it in Bloodshed Dev C++, they are all saved as c, and of course h for the headers...
    Someone told me I needed a DDK to compile it :-/

    You are an ungrateful and selfcentered idiot.

    This is a C programming forum. We discuss C programming. The normal way to compile a C program is to invoke a compiler, all of which have specific methods of compiling.

    The compiler I use has syntax: gcc -o program program.c

    Yours probably differs.

    Driver compilation is very operating system specific, so while it's written in C, the only people likely to be able to help are those who are familiar with driver compilation on Windows. Of the users on this forum, I'd say that would be less than 0.1% of them. The fact that you've had 112 views means nothing, since most people will be unable to help.

    Perhaps if you told us what you've already tried, and what happened, we might be able to offer some insight. Something like "I tried to compile this with dev c++, but got the following errors: <list of errors>" would be helpful.

    You've given us no information whatsoever.

    You already know the answer to your question. You need the DDK to compile any Windows driver. You can order the DDK from MSDN (It's free, but you may have to pay for shipping). The DDK you need depends on what operating system you are creating the driver for. If your target is Windows XP, then get the Windows Server 2003 SP1 DDK CD.
