            winedevice - (internal) manages devices

            Yes wine has to run windows drivers with different games for anti-cheat/copy protection bits to work... The ones that were failing due to the driver being plug and play might now work. This is not hardware access.

              Marketing talk. Plug and play means the OS is shipping with drivers or can acquire them through updates. In windows context it means drivers are on the windows disc or can be downloaded from windows update. It also means that handling of device resources is automatic.

              Plug and play drivers don't exist, only plug and play devices. The term refers to user experience, plug your device in and "play", In which case "play" means that no additional tasks are required by the user, in contrast to the pre-PnP era, when plugging in a device was followed by setting IRQs and DMA and of course manually installing and configuring drivers.

                @eydee: Nope. MS introduced the PNP stack in Windows 2000 with a new driver model. For this, the drivers need to be adapted. PNP in this sense means not only resource management, but also hot-pluging etc. Wine brings in infrastructure to support these kind of drivers now.
