Reloading WDDM Display Driver Without Reboot

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Drivers' started by Soren Dreijer, Nov 10, 2009.

  1. Does anybody know how to reload a WDDM display driver on Vista without having
    to reboot? On XP with XPDM I used the ChangeDisplaySettings API to switch to
    VGA mode and then back to accelerated mode. The same approach doesn’t seem to
    work for my WDDM driver.

    I basically just want to be able to copy in an updated version of the driver
    and have Windows use it.

    Thanks!

  2. Are you trying to load your own WDDM driver or else u r trying to
    Well, both I guess. I've replaced the existing driver with my own driver but
    I'd like to be able to have it reloaded whenever I copy in a new version of
    it.
