The altitude the class's system driver should use when operating in minifilter mode.
int SetAltitude(int iAltitude);
INT SetAltitude(INT iAltitude);
This property specifies the altitude that the class's system driver should use when operating in minifilter mode (i.e., when the FilterMode property is set to FS_FILTER_MODE_MINIFILTER). A driver's altitude determines its absolute position in the stack of filter drivers; drivers with higher altitudes are attached towards the top of the stack, closer to user mode, which allows them to process requests earlier.
Microsoft manages and assigns filesystem minifilter driver altitudes directly, so an application-specific altitude value must be obtained from Microsoft before an application is deployed in production. Please refer to the Driver Altitudes topic for more information. During development, an appropriate arbitrary value, such as 360000 (which isn't registered with Microsoft), can be used.
If this property is queried before an altitude has been set (via this property or the Install method), it will return -1.
This property is not available at design time.
