Video Child device in Windows Vista

Hi !!
I want to create a video child device using video miniport in Windows vista, so I 'm writting non pnp kernel mode driver which creates a FDO and attaches the fdo to PDO (e.g \Device\Video3) using IoAttachDeviceToDeviceStack.

Now How can i create child device for this video device ?

Thanks in Advance

  1. You need to be a pnp driver
  2. you need to install yourself as an upper filter driver for the particular video card. This way you will not have to bind to a specific device name, rather it will be given to you
  3. use KMDF to write the bus driver, it is not that simple to do (and it appears that you have not written WDM drivers before as evidenced by trying to add a non pnp device to a pnp stack)
