About SDV Verifier Questions

TiannaCC 1 Reputation point

According to MS document, SDV can only support full verifier for KMDF.
And sdv should be able to run successfully on UMDF projects with limited verifier.
So I tried to run sdv on two projects, but for both projects face some problems:

  1. UMDF:
    I got a error message: "There was an error building the driver. Please ensure that the driver can be built correctly and try again."
    I am confirmed my project could be build successfully. And I found the error on log shows: error MSB6006: "link.exe" exited with code -1
  2. KMDF:
    There are two environment:
    A. Win10, vs2017, WDK: 10.0.17740.1000, SDK: 10.0.19041.0, with Visual C++ 2012/2013/2015-2019 Redistributable
    B. Win10, vs2019, WDK: 10.0.21381.1000, SDK: 10.0.18362.0, with Visual C++ 2012/2013/2015-2019 Redistributable
    But only option A could run SDV successfully.
    Option B shows error message: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Professional\MSBuild\Microsoft\VC\v160\Microsoft.CppCommon.targets(687,5): error MSB6006: "CL.exe" exited with code 2。
    and also shows in log: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\build\windowsdriver.Sdv.targets(136,9): error MSB3073: "staticdv /check /devenv" command exited with code -1。

Is there any idea could help me to run sdv for both projects?

    I'm having same issue (https://learn.microsoft.com/answers/questions/469484/vs2019-is-it-possible-to-create-a-driver-verificat.html). Can you tell me where the documentation says that SDV can be run only for KMDF?

    So, in case of UMDF, how can the HLK Static Tolls Logo Test can be run?

    I'm able to create SDV for KMDF project with VS-2019. If I remember well I had same issue on staticdv, but I forgot how I solved it... I'll try to recap.

    EDIT 2:
    No, the staticdv error in SDV is for UMDF. For KMDF it works straight away.
    I'm using:

    VS 2019 - WDK 10.0.21381.1000

    Thanks for your reply.


    You can refer to basic Driver Characteristics mentioned in this page.
    It seems sdv could also run UMDF, but with limited verifier.
