      I don't fully understand how the PnP driver thing works. What's an example of how it'd be used?

        I presume things like printer drivers for the Windows apps.

          Does Roblox work? It plays in OpenGL mode but disconnects.

            It for anti-cheat and copy protection and the like drivers will be the first usage.

            PnP driver https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...-plug-and-play
            Happened to run in response to hardware events. Not that it has to in fact run the hardware. So anti-cheat driver trapping

            No wine printer driver does need installing. Its been a very long time since windows printer drivers have been used under wine. Applications look to the printer spool for what printers are available. This is a case the driver stack plays no real part from the application point of view. I am not saying the code will not in time be used todo this but short term no. Other things like anti-cheat drivers trapping input devices and the like will be first.
