By Andy Kiersz/TechRepublicA driver bug is a serious problem that could cause a crash or a crash and downtime for your application.
A good way to spot a driver problem in a production environment is to take the same steps that you would take to investigate the driver bug yourself.
Here are some things to look for:There are three steps you can take when investigating a driver flaw:How long has the issue been in production?
When you have an issue in production, you’ll want to investigate it as soon as possible.
This means you want to see if the issue was fixed or if there is an existing problem.
If there is no existing problem, you can use a driver version checker like DriverChecker to look at the driver version of the application.
You can use DriverCheckers to check for the driver release number (which is the version number of the driver) and a list of the files that are affected.
You want to find out if the driver has been tested on a particular version of your application, as well as the driver architecture version.
You can use the DriverArchitecture field to look into this.
You should also look for any updates to the driver since the driver was last installed.
You may be able to see a driver that was updated recently, but if you don’t know how to check the driver’s version, you may not be able find out what changes were made.
DriverVersion is a field that contains a driver architecture number, the version of a driver, the driver name, and the version that the driver is installed on.
The driverVersion field is not a field with a value.
This field is used to provide information about the version you are looking at.
The DriverArchive field contains information about files and directories that the current driver is looking at (in this case, the directory tree).
The DriverArchives field is only useful when the current directory is the same directory as the files in the directory that are being examined.
The files that you want the driver to look up are the same files that the application is running in, including those in the .config file.
You will also see a directory in the driver that is different from the files you are currently looking at in the application’s directory tree.
If the driver for the current version of code is running on a different architecture than the version being examined, the DriverVersion field will be blank.
This is because the driver may not have been updated for that version of driver.
The directory that contains the driverArchive value is not visible in the DriverVersions field.
The DriverVersion fields will show the current DriverArchiver, the last DriverArchived, and other fields of the DriverDetails field.
When you are in the current path, you should have the following information:FileName – A name that describes the file being examinedThe name can be anything you like.
This can be a file name, a directory name, or the name of a file.
Path – The absolute path to the file you are trying to inspect.
You should use this field only if you are not in the root directory of the folder where the file is located.
DriverInfo – A list of information about each file that you are examining.
The information is displayed as a string of characters.
The first character is the name for the file, followed by the path of the file.
If the file name is not the path, it is shown as a space-separated list of characters, separated by a semicolon.
The next three characters are the extension of the filename, followed with the path to that file.
You may also want to show the file status, including a timestamp of when it was last updated.
This field can be any field that you can include in your driver version checks.
You use it to show if the drivers version is current or is not.
You need to include the FileInfo field as part of the DriversVersion field to determine the file that was last modified.
If you are testing a specific driver version, this field is displayed with the value ‘1’.
The fileInfo field is a list with all the file information that the files are looking for.
You need to provide this field if you have the fileInfo attribute on the driver.
You must use the FileId field if the file has an Id field.
You have two options for including this field in your drivers version checks: you can put the FileName field in the DriversInfo field and the FileStatus field on the drivers information, or you can leave the File Info field blank.
The fileStatus field is also a field.
You put the DriverInfo field in and the DriverStatus field off the drivers info.
You then use the fileStatus to determine whether the file was modified.
In addition to the DriverError field, the fileError field is added to your driver details to indicate the error that occurred during the process of searching for the problem.
The errors are shown in
