The subject says it all, but more specifically, I want to write a virtual
joystick device driver for Vista x64 similar to ppjoy.
If you’re not familiar with ppjoy, it basically creates a joystick device
that may/may not physically exist and receives its input through an API from
various sources, allowing the user to basically map out their own joystick
that may not have native drivers or whose drivers may be lacking in
I’m new to driver development, but not new to programming. I’m looking for
resources on how to get started. I know I have the DDK disc lying around
somewhere, but that’s about as much as I know about driver development at
Again, I need to support Vista x64, so can anyone suggest a book that may
cover that in particular, or some other resource that discusses creating a
virtual device that I can use as a starting point?
Thanks in advance!
