DbgengRemoteCommand is missing

MatthiasMatthias Member Posts: 34

Dear Community,
I am trying to figure out how to run the virtual com UMDF example “VirtualSerial2um” provided on the WinDDK GitHubPage:
For doing so I’ve installed VS2022,WinSDK and WinDDK on 2 WIN10 PC to have one as the host and the other one as the target computer accordingly to steps listed here:
Then I opened the example project provided on the GitHub page in VS2022 and rebuild everything – as this failed with the error “virtualSerial” is reserved I changed the
virtualserial2um.inx file

UmdfService                 = VirtualSerial2um, VirtualSerial_Install
UmdfServiceOrder            = VirtualSerial2um

And then I hit F5 and after choosing the IP Address of the target computer the Device Configuration take place and ended with

 [15:42:30:064]: Task "Creating system restore point" completed successfully
 Progress event: Current: 16, Max: 16, Message: "    Task "Creating system restore point" completed successfully"    
 Result completed
 Test process exit code: 0

Then I followed the recommendation found here
– particularly in the post of Kaplan – however still not solved the “DbgengRemoteCommand is missing” problem. Guess I missed something important - would be glad if someone could point me into the right direction.
