I must get to updating that documentation, or at least marking it deprecated.

You'll need 6001 to be able to build for Windows 2000, but the rest of the 
drivers build only with 7600. 7600 is probably the newest version that will 
work... I believe the Windows 8 is going to be Visual Studio based, which could 
potentially really suck, but I haven't looked at it yet. Worse still I'll now 
need 3 DDK's installed to be able to build for all the different platforms!

In addition, you'll need WiX. I build with 3.5, but I don't know what the 
current version is and if it will work or not.

Let me know how you get on.
