    Hello Everyone,

    I am trying to build the sample code of Windows 2000 DDK with VC7 in the
    Build Environment.

    I am getting a strange linker error that the debugging information is
    corrupt for the last source file's object file and does not produce the
    executable (.sys).

    I read a KB article (239589) which says VC++6 professional/enterprise is
    mandatory for Windows 2000 DDK.

    Has anyone faced the same problem? Since VC6 is not available we have to
    use VC7.

    Please suggest an alternative/solution/workaround for this problem.

    Thanks in advance for the great help.

    Best Regards,

  2. The DDKs since the Windows XP DDK have provided build environments for
    previous OSs (back to 2000) and come complete with the correct compiler,
    linker and other tools. This no longer requires a separate DDK, SDK and
    compiler/linker - nor the need to install them in any particular order
    since the DDK is now self-contained.

    The latest DDK (Windows Server 2003) can be ordered for the code of
    shipping from Using it, you
    can build Windows 2000 drivers.
