getting serial.sys to work for an ISA based 4xserial port card to work

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Drivers' started by daniel.toussaint, Nov 18, 2005.

  1. I have an ISA based card with 4 serial standard serial ports(16550
    type) that share an IRQ (using a cpld) that I would like to use with
    windows 2K.

    As far as I can understand it, i can use the driver included with
    windows (serial.sys) and I need to write a wrapper of some kind and an
    INF file. Is this a correct assumption ?

    Are there any links to information that more or less outline the steps
    to do something like this ? (as i have no prior experience with
    developing kernel mode drivers on microsoft platforms.)
    I would just like to estimate the difficulty of this job first, it
    seems to me that it should be fairly simple.

    Thanks very much,
