Overview: The Microsoft Windows Driver Foundation (WDF), contains a framework for the creation of user-mode drivers. The Uer-Mde Diver Framework (UMDF) is designed to support protocol device classes such as cameras and portable music players. It integrates the installation and management of these devices with standard operating system facilities, such as I/O and Plug and Play and power management. This paper describes the architecture of the user-mode driver framework and how drivers interact with the framework to service their devices.
