Hi,

I'm trying to install a device driver with the help of
the installShield.

OS: win2000.

I know how to manualy install the driver through the
"add/remove new hardware" inside the control panel
but i'm looking for a way to do it automatically from the installshield.

This is what i know and doing:
1. copying the sys file to the correct place on the target.
2. copying the inf file to the INF folder.
3. updtaing the registry with the correct keys.
( i don't know if the last action is a must)

after reebot, the driver still isn't in the device manager
(and ofcourse not working...)
so i have to install it manually.

please help.
Omer.

Omer,

I'm wondering if you have been successful in performing an automatic device driver install?

I am embarking on this same issue, but can not find any help what so ever. Any help would be greatly apprecited.

I was looking for a better way to do install a driver, but you'll need to create a dll/exe/script to call:

UpdatePlugAndPlayDriver

If that call fails because no device is detected then you can call

SetupOEMInf (or something like that)
