WMI Question

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hello,

I am writing a Win2K Bus Driver for a hypothetical bus.
Do I need any WMI related code in it or is it optional ?

I took the "toaster" Bus Driver sample as my starting point and have been
building on top of that. The sample has a file "wmi.c" which I have not
touched BUT it is included in my "sources" file. Can I just simply take
this file out of my "sources" file if I donot want WMI ? Will this have
any effects on my working driver ?

Thanks
Puja
