WER/CrashAPI 2655: ERROR Invalid args, too big block.

What does this mean. I see about 30 of these lines in the debugger when I load my driver on the target.

    Could you please elaborate? Is the error happening on the host or the target? And what is WER and CrashAPI?

    BTW, your reply to my original post somehow wound up in a new thread, instead of being added to the original thread.

    It seems to be related to Visual Studio on the target. When I launch it and open a Solution, then about 15 of these messages appear in the host debugger. If I close and reopen the Solution, then another 15.
    Perhaps VS has a driver that is using DbgPrint with the VDRIVER device?

    WER is windows error reporting. This is just user mode noise getting output
    on the kernel debug console. Generally you can ignore it unless you are
    like a registry or file system filter driver and you are *causing* the apps
    to crash. This is all happening on the target system.
