Chapter 16. Driver Installation > Controlling Driver Load Sequence

Controlling Driver Load Sequence

Sometimes, the order in which a driver loads is important. Perhaps one driver depends on another to complete its initialization. When such dependencies arise, the Service Control Manager can be informed with the Registry entries LoadOrderGroup and Dependencies. These values can also be specified in the [ServiceInstall] section of an INF file.

The LoadOrderGroup identifies by name a single group in which the specified driver is a member. The Dependencies value specifies which other groups must load prior to this driver loading successfully.
