    is this the same request about compileing a device driver on a 64-bit machine that I have seen before? why don't you just buy a 64-bit computer and compile it yourself. Programmers are probably pretty relunctant to compile something on their computer that they have no clue what it does. Not a good thing to do nowdays, which all the viruses etc. going around.

    i Do have a 64bit computer but I don't know how to compile drivers, 64bit drivers can be compiled on 32bit systems jsut as long as they use the right buid enviorment from the windows ddk.

    Oh and the virus thing, its not a virus, and if you want, just look at the source :-p

    The only 64-bit compiler I know of is Visual Studio 2005, but until next Windows is released it will only compile for 32-bit Windows.

    I'd suggest you find out how to compile drivers and learn to do it yourself. you can download the DDK from Microsoft -- assuming it is a driver targeted for Windows os. I think the DDK is free.

    I have been trying to learn, but I just can't grasp it. I've read books, tried tutorials, everything, on ~8month period, still can't get it... I guess I have a mental block or something, should go get that checked

    How do we get images into here?

    EDIT:Yeah I have the ddk... Thats what you have to use to compile a driver, so i've been told.

    To be honest, I have never compiled or written one either. So you need help from other programmers about the details.

    I know, but nowadays, people just have too much things on their hands to do somehting for strangers...

    Edit: I keep trying though, why would I post on the forum about needing help if I didnt need help?

    It's not unusual for someone to not grasp driver programming at first, Don Box didn't grasp COM for over 6 months after he began, I don't see why learning to write drivers would be different.

    To compile windows drivers, you need the Windows DDK. It is available from Microsoft, you must either order it or have an MSDN subscription.

    If you want a good introductory text to driver programming, may I suggest a book? Try to get your hands on a copy of "Undocumented Windows 2000: A programmers' Cookbook by Sven Schrieber," I don't think amazon sells it anymore, but it's probably one of the few things over driver programming I've seen that didn't already assume you were an expert.

    A word of warning: when writing drivers keep in mind that generally the less drivers floating around the better. It never hurts to know how to write drivers, but they pretty much can be the bane of all your programming experiances, chances are, if you're wondering whether you'd need a driver or not, you probably don't. Sysinternals offers some of the most advanced windows tools available, and few of them really require a driver to be loaded.
    operating systems: mac os 10.6, debian 5.0, windows 7
    editor: back to emacs because it's more awesomer!!
    version control: git
