Release Notes

The Windows SideShow Bitmap Driver is source code for the driver and simulator. The following information describes the driver and simulator features.

Bitmap Driver

This driver is based on the user-mode driver framework (UMDF). The bitmap driver contains a sample Simple Content Format (SCF) implementation for parsing and rendering SCF. The driver uses the following technologies:
  • Plug and Play Extensions for Windows (PnP-X) implementation. PnP-X is a set of extensions to Plug and Play that deliver support for network-connected devices.
  • Device Profile Web Services (DPWS) transport, which is used as the communication protocol over IP. The source code includes a Web Service Definition Language (WSDL) file for the SideShow Bitmap Service, configuration files for wsdcodegen.exe, and the code that wsdcodegen.exe creates.
  • Note: You can use other transports instead of DPWS, such as USB.


Is a Windows-based application that uses DPWS as the communication protocol.
