A development kit to make developing new device drivers very easy. This kit contains header files and a library that contains all of the system related things necessary to build a device driver on OS/2. The only thing you need to focus on is your unique code for your device. Then simply link to the library and you can start testing your code. Examples of working drivers are included in the kit. Some of the MultiMac drivers are based on this kit.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Program is distributed as ZIP package: download to temporary directory and unpack to destination folder. See below for download link(s).

The Drv16 Kit is a derivative work of the IBM DDK. You must have a IBM DDK license to use this software. Drv16 is provided to you solely for the purpose of assisting you in developing your own OS/2 device drivers. You may use this software in your device drivers free of charge. Drv16 is provided AS-IS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, not even any implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY. YOUR USE THIS PRODUCT IS CONDITIONED UPON YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT. INSTALLING AND/OR USING THE PRODUCT INDICATES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS PROMPTLY DELETE THIS PRODUCT. This Product consists of: (1) Drv16 Code, (2) Tools and Lib Code. *1. Grant of License for the Drv16 Code* You are granted a non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable right to use the enclosed Drv16 Code for the sole purposes of designing, developing and testing derivative work(s) which are device drivers for the OS/2 program (the "OS/2 Device Driver"). In addition, you are granted a non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable right to reproduce and distribute, in object code form only, the permitted derivative works described above. Under this license you may not: a. use, copy, modify, display or merge copies of the Drv16 Code except as provided in this agreement; b. distribute, sublicense, rent, lease, assign or transfer the Drv16 Code, except as provided in this agreement; or c. disclose, display, disseminate, market or distribute the Drv16 Code in any media, except for your own internal use by you or your full-time employees on a need to know basis on your premises. *2. Grant of License for Tools and Lib Code* You are granted a non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable right to use the Tools and Lib Code, in object code form only, and only for your internal use and for the sole purposes of designing, developing and testing the OS/2 Device Driver. Under this license you may not: a. use or copy the Tools and Lib Code except as provided in this agreement; b. modify, display, or merge copies of Tools and Lib Code; c. reverse assemble or reverse compile the Tools and Lib Code; d. distribute, sublicense, rent, lease, assign or transfer the Tools and Lib Code; Requirements ------------ 1. The latest MiniDDK (preferred) or an updated DDK. If you get compile warnings or errors using the DDK, then your DDK is not up-to-date. The MiniDDK contains no source code, and has been rearranged so that all header files are in base/h or base32/h, all include files are in base/inc or base32/inc, and all libraries are in base/lib or base32/lib. The supplied makefiles assume the layout of the MiniDDK, so some changes may be required to your DDK, or to the makefiles of your project so that the appropriate files can be found. For the Drv16 Kit, check that you have the newest versions of the following files: base\h\strategy.h 5,952 bytes base\h\devhelp.h 32,922 bytes 2. OpenWatcom v1.9 or greater See http://www.openwatcom.org The resulting driver built with the Drv16 package will only run on Pentium class systems and above. 486 processors and below are not supported. Sample Drivers Included ----------------------- Sample The driver in the Sample directory is a real working driver that you can use as an example for building your own driver. Required The driver in the Required directory is the bare minimum you need to build a working driver using Drv16. There is plenty of documentation in the comments in Driver.c and BaseDev.c. Installing the Required Packages -------------------------------- Note: Example commands are only to indicate logical flow and meaning. They will need to be modified to apply to your particular system. 1. Unzip the package. If you are reading this, then you probably have already done that. 2. Copy the contents of the Kit directory to a directory of your choice. Example: md E:\Drv16Kit copy Kit\* e:\Drv16Kit 3. Set the DRV16KIT environment variable to point to the Drv16 Kit you just installed. Example: set DRV16KIT=e:\Drv16Kit You can put this statement in your CONFIG.SYS so it is always available. 4. If you are using your own DDK, skip this step. Install the MiniDDK. Create a directory for the MiniDDK and unzip the contents of the MiniDDK into that directory. Example: md E:\MiniDDK cd e:\MiniDDK 7za x MiniDDK-20131010.7z 3. Set the DDK environment variable to point to the MiniDDK you just installed, or to your DDK. Example: set DDK=e:\MiniDDK You can put this statement in your CONFIG.SYS so it is always available. 4. Make sure you have the WATCOM environment variable pointing to your OpenWatcom installation. Example: set WATCOM=e:\Watcom You can put this statement in your CONFIG.SYS so it is always available. Building the Sample Drivers --------------------------- Go to the directory of the driver you want to build and type wmake. Example: cd Sample wmake Example: cd Required wmake Documentation ------------- Documentation for this package is in the header files and the sample drivers. The MultiMac drivers also use the DRV16 kit. You can look at them for examples of more complex drivers. Drv16 Kit is beta level software -------------------------------- This package is currently under development. Many features and modules needed to build more complex drivers are still missing. More features and modules are being added. The modules that exist have been tested and should work fine. If you have a problem or need a feature, please contact me at david@88watts.net. Be sure to put Drv16Kit in the subject line.
