During the USB device driver attach processingoperation, the device driver may register a callback function. When a user detaches a peripheral from the bus, the USBD module calls the callback function.

The callback function also has the option of calling other functions in the USB device driver, such as USBUnInstallDriver. USBUnInstallDriverremoves all registry keys that were created by the driver's USBInstallDriverfunction and releases any other resources that are held by the driver. In this way, a user can remove any old registry settings for a particular device when a new or updated driver for that device is available. Note that the USBD module never calls USBUnInstallDriverdirectly.
