Device Status and DLL Type



  1. Is there a reliable way to find out the device status from the device driver, so that I don’t have to “ping” the XEM to see if it’s still there?

  2. For the DLL, can you specify the type of DLL, as in, is it MFC or win32, and is it regular static, regular dynamic, or extension?

Many thanks,



Bill, these are questions that Jake will have to answer. Unfortuanately, he’s out of town until Wednesday.


Hi Garrick, Jake,

Along the same line, I was also wondering if you have some documentation on what all the OK functions return… I see lots of BOOL but nothing saying whether that’s success or failure or what… no pun intended, and lots of functions returning void, where I would expect a status of some kind…

Many Thanks,
