WDK 10.0.15063.0 : section not refrenced or used in inf file

zviveredzvivered Member Posts: 15


I'm using the attached inf file in my V.S 2015 project.
This project is based in the PLX9x5x from github.

Upon build I got the following warnings:
Warning 2083 Section [pciogt_addreg] not referenced or used.
Warning 2083 Section [pciogt_inst.hw] not referenced or used.

Those sections are critical for MSI and MSI-X
Can you please explain what is wrong in my inf ?

Thank you,

    Since your base install section is decorated [PciOgt_Inst.NT], your HW section needs to be [PciOgt_Inst.NT.HW].

    Note that the INF checker is not all-knowing. I believe your INF would have worked just fine.
