As we know,the DriverEntry() is the entry point of sys file,but I find the function is not the export function of sys file,so the PnP Manager how to find the function?Does DriverEntry() like the main() function of C?

    If you look in the build logs, you will note that drivers are linked with
    the ??-entry?? option to indicate that [email protected] is the entry point of
    the binary image. Thus, it does in fact work like the main() function. You
    could, were you so inclined, change it so that the driver linked with
    something ELSE as the entry point.
