This function notifies NDIS that a new miniport is initializing.
VOID NdisMInitializeWrapper( OUT PNDIS_HANDLE NdisWrapperHandle , IN PVOID SystemSpecific1 , IN PVOID SystemSpecific2 , IN PVOID SystemSpecific3 );
An NIC driver or intermediate driver must call this function before it calls any other Ndis XXX function. Usually, this call is the initial action of any NIC driver's DriverEntryfunction, which calls the NdisMRegisterMiniportor the NdisIMRegisterLayeredMiniportfunction with the returned NdisWrapperHandlenext. NDIS intermediate drivers must also call this function from the DriverEntryfunction, and then call NdisMRegisterMiniportor NdisIMRegisterLayeredMiniportwith the returned NdisWrapperHandle.
Such a driver's subsequent calls to Ndis XXXinitialization and configuration functions must pass the NdisWrapperHandleas a parameter. Consequently, it is an input parameter to MiniportInitialize.
A driver that calls this function runs at IRQL PASSIVE_LEVEL.
