ippStaticInit linked into driver?

Hi all,
I have not found any ill effects to calling ippStaticInit() in code that gets compiled into a driver for XP. However, I do see in the documentation that "The function ippStaticInit should not be used in the driver implementation."

1. "THE" driver implementation? Should I read this as, "don't call this function within driver code?"
2. If so, does anyone know why this is? As I said, I've done it and not seen any problems after extensive testing, but I'd like to know more about why this statement was listed.

Thanks!

Hello,

documentation is a bit outdated in that particular case. It was limitation for earlier versions of IPP, starting from version IPP 5.x you cancall IPP static dispatcher in kernel mode drivers.

Regards,
Vladimir
