The only way I know, is to download the WDK (windows driver kit) from Microsoft connect or MSDN.

also if you are looking into debugging such drivers in a 7 enviroment if you still have not installed 7 i would advise you to use the Windows 7 beta checked build as drivers are easier to debug with this version of windows...

if you a search for windows ecosystem here it should lead you to the windows ecosystem program and will enable to still download either windows 7 beta uncheck and checked build...

of course this complements the WDK...
