Default Service installation section in this INF is invalid

Hi,

I am new to Device Driver Development. I'm learning the basics to understand. I need to develop a USB driver for our company device which has to perform bulk transfer.
I tried the usb, umdf samples present in the WDK. I modified the files under step 4 and tried installing in win XP. I used free build.

I'm getting the following error
Add Service: Binary "C:\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\WUDFRd.sys" for service "WUDFRd" is not present.
#E032 Error 0xe0000217: A service installation section in this INF is invalid.

Do I need to install WUDFRd.sys explicitly before installing the driver? I've not signed the driver. will it be ignored or is it failing bcos of the unsigned driver?

Please help. thanks.

The setupapi.log file says :
#-166 Device install function: DIF_REGISTER_COINSTALLERS.

This is for UMDF only. Are you using UMDF?
