Version 5.2.1

Release Date 23.10.2002

Enhancements

  • Several transfer commands that acknowledge an interrupt/for interrupt acknowledgment can now be set in DriverWizard.
  • Improvement of Debug Monitor buffer overflow behavior, so that older messages are lost rather than new messages.

  • KernelDriver can now be loaded prior to loadingWINDRVR.SYS.

Fixes

  • GeneralFixed a bug that caused memory corruption and BSOD on Win2000/XP, when performing contiguous DMA and callingWD_DMAUnlock().Fixed BSOD when KernelDriver callsWD_IntCount()from high IRQL (usually the function is called fromwindrvr_int_thread.hISR).Fixed BSOD in cases when a LOT of interrupts (2\^31) are generated but no application/driver is registered to listen to them.Fixed a bug that caused a potential for BSOD on each call to the Kernel PlugIn (especially on checked build when using Microsoft Driver Verifier).Fixed a bug that caused Cypress EZ-USB firmware download to fail (especially if recompiled).Fixed bugs in the support for Visual Basic and Delphi, which caused compilation errors.Fixed Scatter/Gather DMA handling on Linux, which gave wrong byte count to first and last pages.Fixed a bug that caused theXXX_CountDevices()function in the USB generated code to fail.Fixed a bug in the Kernel PlugIn installation, which caused the Kernel PlugIn to fail to start after reboot.

Fixes

  • PCI — GeneralAccess to EEPROM of PLX 9030, 9054 and IOP480 chipsets was improved. Now when access to EEPROM of these chipsets fails, WinDriver retries the entire access process.Interrupt handling by DriverWizard was fixed. A bug since version 5.0 caused DriverWizard to handle interrupts without implementing all the parameters assigned by the user; this affected level sensitive interrupt handling and data transfer operation type definition.Execution method of interrupts transfer commands was improved.

  • Linux — GeneralThe operation of the functionWD_DMALock()for contiguous DMA under Linux was fixed. The bug caused the function to reserve one extra page (if the allocation was page aligned). This resulted in kernel panic insidekfree()(which was observed when the following sequence was performed: lock, lock, free, free).Modified user makefiles for compilation under RedHat Linux 7.0 and above.

Now, the resource management is handled bywdpnp.sysinstead ofwindrvr.sys/vxdand ifwindrvr.sys/vxdis loaded afterwdpnp.sys, it will initiate the transfer of the card resources instead ofwdpnp.sys.Moreover, nowwdpnp.sysdoes not assume thatwindrvr.sysis loaded and the two files open a communication path between them only to perform short operations, and then close it. This allows eliminating the dependency between the files and results in an improved stability and robustness.Fixed the methodwdpnp.sysretrieves the bus number of PCI devices. It now retrieves the bus number by directly inquiring the PCI devices, instead of inquiring the Windows operating system, since the operating system always returns 0.Fixed IDE to invoke combo box behavior on Windows platforms.

The bug caused DriverWizard to issue application error when long data strings were sent.Timeout expiration was fixed to avoid BSOD if the USB device is no longer connected.WinDriver now uses the operating system’s DeviceAddress as a USB uniqueId instead of obtaining the Pointer to Device Object (PDO) from the operating system. Now WinDriver obtains the PDO only for the purpose of communicating with the USB device at theWD_GetConfiguration()andWD_DeviceRegister()stages. The reason is that obtaining the PDO is an intrusive operation, which could interfere with the operation of other devices drivers.For Isochronous data transfers, now WinDriver sends the last packet in a separate transaction, instead of the same transaction. The bug caused, in certain circumstances, the operating system USBD to send the last packet twice.

  • Removed limitation of 20 concurrent DMA buffers in use.

Version 2.1.2

Release Date 21.03.1997

  • For memory mapped cards: you can now directly access the memory region, without callingWD_Transfer(). The pointer to the memory region is returned indwUserDirectAddrreturned byWD_CardRegister().
  • DMA transfers: DMA contiguous buffer allocation by WinDriver is available by settingdwOptions = DMA_KERNEL_BUFFER_ALLOC, when callingWD_DMALock(). the linear address of the buffer allocated will be returned inpUserAddr, and the physical address inPage[0]. the buffer is available until callingWD_DMAUnlock().

Version 2.1.1

Release Date 11.03.1997

  • For PCI cards: Structure used for calls toWD_PciScanCards()was changed. UsepciScan.searchId.dwVendorIdandpciScan.searchId.VendorIdand the same fordwDeviceId.

Version 2.1.0

Release Date 20.02.1997

  • For memory mapped cards, changed itemdwUserAddrtodwTransAddr.
