RE: Upper filter driver and Microsoft Usbccid driver problem

As a starting point you need to configure umdf for this device stack to accept km originated io. Are you installing a device or class filter?

Subject: [ntdev] Upper filter driver and Microsoft Usbccid driver problem

I developed upper class filter driver for Smart reader device.
Class : {50DD5230-BA8A-11D1-BF5D-0000F805F530}
This diver performs monitoring Irp and process our proprietary request (IOCTL_SMARTCARD_PROP).
The application send proprietary requests using SCardControl function.
DriverObject->MajorFunction[IRP_MJ_DEVICE_CONTROL] = DispatchDeviceControl;
The DispatchDeviceControl if get proprietary request (IOCTL_SMARTCARD_PROP )
send sequense of smart card command.
In order to send smart card command to low level driver in this case I use following way:

KeInitializeEvent(&event, NotificationEvent, FALSE);
irp = IoBuildDeviceIoControlRequest(

if( irp==NULL )

status = IoCallDriver( DeviceExtension->TopOfStack, irp);

The driver works properly on many our customers on Windows XP .
I have problem on Window 7 if use this way on readers using Microsoft Usbccid driver (WUDF).

If use SCR3310 or OMNILEY readers and computer connect to Internet those readers do not use WUDF driver( drivers will be updated) .
For example driver SCR3XX2K.sys signed by Microsoft will be used for SCR 3310 reader.
In this case driver works properly and send sequense of smart card commands to low level diver without any problem.

If SCR3310,OMNIKEY,Precise readers use WUDF driver IoCallDriver return STATUS_INVALID_DEVICE_REQUEST (0xC0000010L).
I was wondering if anyone can help me what is wrong.
