Build And Zip
Helper project to zip the Driver Packages after building. Has only Release Configurations, so should be only used on Release builds. Has a dependency on
HID Wiimote Package so the package itself is build/rebuild as well.
Utility project that generates different files containing the current version string. Version is parsed from package readme.
My own implementation of the MsHidKmdf driver, so I can pass some function addresses to the HID Wiimote driver. It basically just passes everything down to the HID Wiimote filter driver, additionally a custom IOCTL to request function addresses.
Main driver - does all the important Wiimote stuff.
HID Wiimote Control Center
User Mode Application to set specific device settings. Also includes an installer and updater.
HID Wiimote User Mode
User Mode Managed Library to interact with Wiimote Devices.
HID Wiimote Package
Driver Package/Utility project, to pack everything into one package and sign it. No code, just settings.
