    Hi again,

    I have one more question. Is it ok to change Irp->IoStatus.Status from
    STATUS_SUCCESS to an error code in a completion routine? I've found lots of
    information about completion routines, marking Irps pending and returning
    nothing that tells me if I can legally change the Irp->IoStatus.Status

    If we can do this, do we need to do anything else like complete the request
    again, or changing the status value ok.

  2. yes, it is valid to change the status.

  3. As long as the dispatch routine returns the same status OR STATUS_PENDING.

    So if you think you may change the IRP status in your completion routine you
    should return STATUS_PENDING in your dispatch routine (and mark the IRP
    pending, etc...)

    The verifier will get pissy if the dispatch routine and the IO status block
    contain different values on completion (except for the pending case)
