How portable or restrictive are MiniFilter drivers?

Hi, With normal drivers you can say build one for XP and use it all the way through W7 provided you didn't need some special thing added in a new release. With mini filter drivers is that the same or are they more sensitive and you must use the build environment for the actual platform? TIA!!

It is the same deal. Of course you must make sure you handle your imports right as with any kind of module in that sense. Don't call Windows 8 only APIs in the XP environment is what I am basically trying to say here.
