Microsoft Delete Filter not showing up on DebugView

chex2020chex2020 Member Posts: 4

I am new to Driver writing, I downloaded and built the Delete sample driver provided by Microsoft, I installed it on my VM successfully using the INF file, but when I started the service, it doesn't show up in the DebugView application like other drivers I tested previously. Does anyone have any insight on this? Please help me out.

    Note that in this sample only errors are logged by default:

    #define DF_PRINT( ... )                                                      \
    #define DF_DBG_PRINT( _dbgLevel, ... )                                       \
        (FlagOn( gTraceFlags, (_dbgLevel) ) ?                                    \
            DF_PRINT( __VA_ARGS__ ):                                             \

    You can add the DFDBG_TRACE_ROUTINES and DFDBG_TRACE_OPERATION_STATUS flags to see more logs
