Writing kernel-mode Windows NT device drivers is challenging. To facilitate education and research, we have developed the Proxy driver, a system for developing user-mode drivers. Using the Proxy Driver to retrieve I/O requests from the kernel, user-mode drivers can export full device services to the NT executive and applications. User-mode device drivers offer enormous flexibility for emulating devices and experimenting with new file systems.
