Can’t compile ETW xml in minifilter

Sergey_PisarevSergey_Pisarev Member - All Emails Posts: 163
Hello !
I am trying to integrate ETW in my minifilter.
I do this on the base of sample general\tracing\evntdrv\eventdrv .
For now I just copy evntdrv.xml to my project and copy parts of vcxproj and vcxproj.filters in my project files.
On compilation I get errors:
Failed to open file for write: ‘.’
Failed creating provider resources for manifest evntdrv.xml

Interesting thing is that for simple wdm driver everything is ok, problem only for minifilter.

Is there solution for this issue ?

    I guess I did something wrong first time.
    Created new minifilter project and everything works fine. Sorry

    The problem was Project properties->Configuration properties->general->intermediate directory setting.
    I get error if I use $(ProjectDir) in path.

    So for example:
    $(ProjectDir)\tmp\$(ConfigurationName)\$(PlatformShortName)\ - error

    tmp\$(ConfigurationName)\$(PlatformShortName)\ -ok
