Hi, I am trying to get my hands on a copy of the DDK for windows. It looks like either you have to be a MSDN Subscriber, or you can order a "free CD" and they will ship it to you. Unfortunatly, shipping is $20. I can probably get it from my University as they are an MSDN member (MSDNAA), but they take forever to do anything. Does anyone know where I can download the DDK without being an MSDN member or ordering their "Free CD"? -Greg

Does anyone even know what the DDK is? I was pointed in that direction, but I am not even sure what it comes with or why I need it. I am a real beginner when it comes to writing hardware drivers. Are there alternatives to the DDK? Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if it is just to say "pay the $20 bucks for the CD".

Thanks,
-Greg

Ugh, I hate to bump, but I really need this toolkit. 50 views and not one comment?

I'm not sure if MSDNAA includes the DDK.
Pay the $20. It's your only real choice - you can't download it anywhere. Given everything that comes on the CD, is it really that expensive?

There used to be a link on there to download, it should be off on the right hand side somewhere (I think). I downloaded it about a year ago, and the link should still be there.

I also felt like trying it out at one time, but it seems that it can't be downloaded from anywhere. Unless you can find someone you know who can give you a copy of it, you might as well just order the CD. Otherwise, maybe you could find a Microsoft office and ask for the kit there, so it won't have to be shipped.

You want the "Windows Server 2003 DDK". This is free (but plus shipping) and covers Win 2000 and XP as well as Server 2003.
