Re: How to unload or reload a WinCE driver

Getting that handle and using it is a kludge available only in CE 5.0 and
earlier.  You can't use it in 6.0 or later.

There is a really good post by bruce eitman in his blog check it out.

If you are not having the device handle, you can obtain it from
registry (Hnd under the Drivers\Active\<instance> key)

Yes it is possible in windows ce 6.0.
What i did was, i took the handle value from registry Active entry,
and used the sample program given by bruce to unload the driver and it
The entry was removed from active list.
