Debugging user mode issues for filters/FSes

Dejan_MaksimovicDejan_Maksimovic Member - All Emails Posts: 373

Anyone ever had to debug user mode issues with filters/FSes? Any pointers?

We have a filter (legacy style, but our code) that causes Wininit to terminate. This is a user-mode issue, i.e. Verifier sees no problems, and there isn't a bugcheck per se (in a session with WinDBG there isn't, after "terminating critical process" break the system just ... hangs, it does not blue screen).

Debugging kernel mode errors seems trivial compared to this, and I ran out of ideas (they were all basic, but still..)
