Removing a buggy old driver. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on a usb device driver for win 10 LTSC 2019 x64.
    and sometimes it causes error in driver installation(startdevice pnp message processing). because of some bug
    BSOD is generated, then reboot, I modified the USB driver and tried to install the driver at the device manager.
    However, the old driver is reloaded and BSOD occurs again.

    I have done the following to solve this problem. but this problem was not solved, and I had to reinstall the win10 os.  :(

    1. Attempt to delete the old driver from Device Manager.

       Set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
       Start devmgmt.msc

       -- > Old devices are not visible on hidden devices

    2. Attempt to delete the oem driver using devcon.exe
     
       devcon dp_enum    --> check installed oem drivers.
       devcon dp_delete  oemxx.inf --> remove installed oem driver


    3. Delete registry key.
       \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Service\ServicNameOfMyDriverService

    Please let me know if there is another way to solve this problem.
