Starting and Stopping a driver

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Drivers' started by Nicolas Mugnier, Jul 31, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    NT4 had a panel to start and stop drivers without rebooting. Where can I
    find this panel in Win2000 ?
    It seems to no longer exist... so how can I do start and stop a driver now ?

    If it is a newer WDM driver, you can disable it with the
    device manager.

  3. For PnP drivers, you can only Enable/Disable devices in Device Manager.
    Disabling the last device triggers the driver unload.

    For non-PnP drivers, use NET START and NET STOP - they are the same as in NT4.

    When you have Device Manager open, click "Show Hidden Devices" on the view
    menu. Then a new class of devices will show up as "Non-Plug and Play
    Drivers". The familiar start and stop functions are in there for these type
    of drivers.
