IoAllocateForward rule (wdm)

The IoAllocateForward rule specifies that if an IRP is generated by a call to IoAllocateIrp, the driver must set a completion routine before calling IoCallDriver or PoCallDriver.

Driver model: WDM

How to test

At compile time

Run Static Driver Verifier and specify the IoAllocateForward rule.

Use the following steps to run an analysis of your code:
  1. Prepare your code (use role type declarations).
  2. Run Static Driver Verifier.
  3. View and analyze the results.
