W2k serial port and modem wizard

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hi.

I have developed serial port driver that creates virtual serial port
and it is designed for NT. Now, I am testing it on W2k.
It seems my regacy serial port driver is working fine on W2k.
But when I try to install a modem by modem wizard,
it won't display my port in the list of ports in system.

Does anyone know where the modem wizard is looking for information
about serial ports that installed on system?

Thanks and regards,

    You need to add serenum.sys as an upper filter driver for your driver. This
    way your driver will be enumerated into a list of serial ports that will be
    available for modems. Look in the the msports.inf file on a Win2K system for
    an example of how this is done.
