This function tells NDIS to create a new device instance.
VOID NdisRegisterAdapter( OUT PNDIS_STATUS Status , IN PWSTR MiniportDriverName , IN PWSTR AdapterInstanceName );
NdisRegisterAdapteris used to dynamically create new device instances. If the specified miniport driver is not loaded then it will be loaded and initialized by this function. The MiniportInitializehandler of the driver will then be invoked as part of the creation of the specified device instance.
Prior to calling this function, registry information for the miniport driver and adapter instance must be configured in HKLM\Comm as for any NDIS driver.
[HKLM\Comm\<MiniportDriverName>] "Group"="NDIS" "ImagePatch"="<driver>.dll" [HKLM\Comm\<AdapterInstanceName>\Parms] "BusNumber"=dword:<busnumber> "BusType"=dword:<bustype> <other parameters as needed by the miniport driver, such as IRQ, IOAddr, TcpIP, and so on>
NdisRegisterAdaptershould not be used for a NIC on a PCMCIA bus.
