StreamClassRegisterAdapter function (strmini.h)

The StreamClassRegisterAdapter routine registers a stream class minidriver.

The name StreamClassRegisterAdapter is supported for backward compatibility only.

Instead, Microsoft recommends the use of StreamClassRegisterMinidriver, an alias of StreamClassRegisterAdapter. The name StreamClassRegisterMinidriver more accurately indicates that the routine registers a stream class minidriver. Once registered, a minidriver can drive any number of adapter instances in a system.

The StreamClassRegisterMinidriver routine registers a stream minidriver with the stream class driver.

Syntax

NTSTATUS STREAMAPI StreamClassRegisterAdapter(
  [in] PVOID                   Argument1,
  [in] PVOID                   Argument2,
  [in] PHW_INITIALIZATION_DATA HwInitializationData
);

Parameters

[in] Argument1

Points to the first argument to the minidriver's DriverEntry routine.

[in] Argument2

Points to the second argument to the minidriver's DriverEntry routine.

[in] HwInitializationData

Points to an HW_INITIALIZATION_DATA structure that provides the information the class driver needs to begin initializing the minidriver.

Return value

Returns STATUS_SUCCESS on success, or the appropriate error code on failure.

Remarks

A stream minidriver must call StreamClassRegisterMinidriver within its DriverEntry routine.

The stream minidriver's DriverEntry initializes a stream class minidriver. This routine is required.

Argument1 Supplies a context value with which the adapter minidriver should call StreamClassRegisterMinidriver. For Windows 2000 and later, this points to a DRIVER_OBJECT.

Argument2 Supplies a second context value with which the adapter minidriver should call StreamClassRegisterMinidriver. For Windows 2000 and later, this points to a registry path.

DriverEntry returns the value returned by its call to StreamClassRegisterMinidriver.

Remarks DriverEntry is the initial entry point for a stream class minidriver.

Since StreamClassRegisterMinidriver performs most of the required driver initialization, the primary task of a stream class minidriver's DriverEntry routine is to allocate and fill in a HW_INITIALIZATION_DATA structure with driver-specific constants and entry points. The DriverEntry should then call StreamClassRegisterMinidriver.

Most of the information passed in the HW_INITIALIZATION_DATA structure informs the class driver of the minidriver-wide callbacks, and what size buffers to allocate for the minidriver's data structures. The class driver queries the minidriver for additional start-up information through SRB_INITIALIZE_DEVICE and SRB_GET_STREAM_INFO requests to the minidriver's StrMiniReceiveDevicePacket routine (passed as the HwReceivePacket member of HW_INITIALIZATION_DATA).

Once registered, a minidriver can drive any number of adapter instances in a system.
