    Should I order windows XP DDK or Windows Server 2003 DDK? The Microsoft web page for the Windows Server 2003 DDK said that it contains the windows XP DDK, which I need. I have read something similar before from the windows website and it was incorrect. Since I need the windows XP DDK I thought that I would also get the Server 2003 DDK. Any hints?

  2. The WS2003 DDK contains the header files, libraries and build environments
    for it an all OSs back to Windows 2000, incl XP.

  3. In addition, the WS2003 DDK includes improvements to DriverVerifier and new
    tools such a PreFast. Also, there are improvements to the DDL sample drivers
    that are in the WS2003 DDK.

    Get the latest, if you can.

    Good luck,
