The Interception API aims to build a portable programming interface that allows one to intercept and control a range of input devices.
Source code is built upon Windows Driver Kit Version 7.1.0.
Simple build scripts (
buildit.cmd) are provided to build using specific build environments of the WDK, they require the environment variable
%WDK%to be previously set to the WDK installation directory.
Drivers can be installed through the command line installer, but driver installation requires execution inside a prompt with administrative rights.
install-interceptionwithout any arguments inside an console executed as administrator and it will give instructions for installation.
Interception is dual-licensed.
For non-commercial purposes it adopts LGPL for the library and its source code, with rights of distribution of the related binary assets (drivers and installers ) once communication with drivers happen solely by use of the library and its API.
For commercial purposes it adopts two other licenses which can be checked in the licenses directory:
Interception API License:
It's similar to the non-commercial license, solely removing restrictions for commercial usage.
It also includes an additional asset which is an installer library, so that driver installation can be embedded silently in your own installer.
Provides access to all source code, including drivers and installers.
Please contact me at [email protected] for acquiring a commercial license.
Interception has been used around the world in cases I couldn't imagine when I first created it:
