So I'm starting to look into this whole HLK test thing that Microsoft is forcing everyone to pass to support older systems.
But the explanation of MSDN is really vague and confusing, I just want to have a simple answer to these questions:
Lets say i just have a very simple WDM driver that is a file system minifilter (has pre/post callbacks) + have some process creation callbacks, its nothing fancy or hardware related, and i just load it and don't install it, So what is the HLK test for such a driver? Meaning what does this test check, and how can i make sure my simple driver passes this test? What should i look into in my source code? Is there any checklist?
How can i run the test locally on my machine just to check if my driver passes this test or not? Is there any tool like verifier that i just select a select a driver and it does its testings?
I really apologize for asking such a basic question, but i tried to get these answer by reading these articles:
But they just seem way too complicated, I guess that's because these cover many types of drivers, mostly hardware based, and mine are very simple WDM drivers..
