AR# 32309: EDK - My newly created driver is not available for use in SDK
EDK - My newly created driver is not available for use in SDK
When I create a driver for a custom peripheral, I cannot select the driver in the software platform settings.
How do I resolve this problem?
This is a known issue.
To work around the problem, perform the following:
Create a user repository, C:\<Repository_Name>\<Library_Name> (if you do not already have one). For example: C:\edk_user_repository\MyProcessorIPLib\ NOTE: The above directory structure is not in the XPS project nor SDK project.
Copy the "drivers" folder from your project to the above folder. So, you should have: C:\edk_user_repository\MyProcessorIPLib\drivers\<custom_ip>\
In SDK, add the global repository by selecting Tool > Software Repositories, and add C:\edk_user_repository.
Now, if you go to Tools > Software Platform Settings, you should be able to select the driver.
