Installing the IVSHMEM Driver

Windows will not prompt for a driver for the IVSHMEM device, instead it will use a default null driver for the device. To install the IVSHMEM driver you will need to go into device manager and update the driver for the deviceĀ under the "System Devices" node for "PCI standard RAM Controller".

A signed Windows 10 driver can be obtained from Red Hat for this device from this git issue report:
https://github.com/virtio-win/kvm-guest-drivers-windows/issues/217
Note: The driver provided here is temporary pending an updated build of the VirtIO-win imageĀ from Red Hat.
