Problems enabling WDf Verifier?

I’ve been working with a developer on a separate thread here with a situation in which it appears all the proper steps have been followed to enable the KMDF Verifier and it isn’t working.

I have no way to reproduce this problem so far, nor does it even seem realistically possible for it to even happen. Code to read driver settings out of the architected place in the registry isn’t exactly difficult or daunting or hard to review or test, etc.

It appears that it will be a couple of weeks before the one instance I know of can be followed up on. So, if ANYONE sees this problem in the meantime and has access to a debugger for said machine, please email me. I’ll do my best to keep the amount of your time I take to a minimum.

Have you looked at a .reg file exported from regedit?

If you double click on the “VerifierOn” text in the WDK documentation,
ctrl-c and then ctrl-v into regedit, the value name will include a trailing
space character. This is virtually invisible in regedit, but can be easily
seen in a .reg file in notepad.

Thanks, Dan- that must be it. Nothing else makes any sense at all.
