Disk drive upper filter driver for Windows 8

Hi,

We had a crash issue on installing WDM based upper filter driver for disk drive in Windows 8.

We had an Upper filter driver written for Disk drive in Windows 7 OS.
This is a 32 bit driver. It is working fine with Windows 7 OS.

We tried to use the same filter driver for Windows 8 - 32 bit OS.
We used nmake2msbuild to convert the WDM source to Visual studio project.
We compiled the source with Visual Studio 2012 (integrated with WDK 8).

Installation was done as below.
Right clicked on inf file and selected install option.
System had asked for Restart. Restarted the system.
System was crashed, when the restarting is in progress.

Whether it is compatibility issue with Windows 8 OR Installation issue?
Please suggest your ideas.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Raphel

This question is more appropriate on NTDev but posting some of the crash
information will provide us information to help you analyze the problem.

is it possible to post a stack trace atleast when the crash happens, it
would be difficult to guess what is going on without it.

Are you using any RTL functions in your driverEntry?
