when I'm uninstalling my pure virtual audio driver on some W10, 1803
machines via devcon remove the driver the driver doesn't seem to be
uninstalled completely as it is still visible as hidden device in the device
manager even after a reboot. But in setupapi.dev.log the corresponding entry
[Delete Device - ROOT\MEDIA\0006]
Section start 2018/10/12 09:52:11.354
cmd: "C:\Program Files (x86)\MyApplication\devcon.exe" remove
dvi: Query-and-Remove succeeded
<<< Section end 2018/10/12 09:52:12.031
<<< [Exit status: SUCCESS]
On some other machines the drivers are completely gone and not in hidden
Could this "hidden driver" effect be due to user privileges or some Antivir
software installed on these machines?
What makes an uninstalled driver go into this hidden state and can this have
any subsequent negative effects if I'm installing a new version of my driver
while the old version is still in this hidden state?
Could this be something which is new since the 1803 update as I don't think
I've seen this before?
Thanks and best regards,
