RE: [Q] What does DRVO_LEGACY_DRIVER mean?

Uh, the Microsoft C runtime doesn't work for **** in kernel-mode either.
That's why we all compile without it and link to ntoskrnl.lib.

My question is, does the BC++ compiler support structured exception
handling? There are certain scenarios when a driver just cannot do
without it.

And does it allow you to use C++ exception handling, where MSVC++ does
not due to its dependence on user-mode APIs?

Damn straight. Life's already complicated enough without trying to paddle

What are the _benefits_ to using the Borland compiler ? Do you think
Microsoft care one iota that you're taking a stand against using their tools
? I think your customers are much more likely to be annoyed when _they_
discover that the C runtime for the Borland compiler doesn't work correctly
in kernel-mode....

Hey whatever floats your boat :-)

As for me, I like to minimize risk and exposure wherever possible. I think
its an age-difference life perspective thing.
