WRS Implementation in Windows 8 and 2012
The network hooking mechanism is different in Windows 8/2012. TmProxy uses Transfer Driver Interface (TDI) technology while Osprey uses Window Filtering Platform (WFP) technology. TDI driver needs to reboot the system if there is an update for tmtdi.sys. In the same scenario, WFP driver update does not need to reboot the system since it allows loading and unloading of drivers in the system.
