I am a student who just started in Windows Driver Development. The project I am trying to do is to create a Virtual Monitor and capturing its framebuffer.
The examples that Microsoft have about Display Drivers is a KMDOD and i don't know if i will be capable of archiving my goal using this type of driver.
Another doubt i have is that if KMDOD can use a real GPU to render the windows on the display. In WDDM 1.2 features documentation it says that "Windows handles the 2-D or 3-D rendering by using software-simulated GPU." but on MS forums "Even WDDM Display-Only-Drivers (which do not have a WDDM User Mode Driver) need actual graphics adapter hardware." so i do not know if the rendering would be done by HW GPU or SF GPU.
