I am new to InstallShield. I have built a basic .msi file which uses a.bat file to run a .inf file. This installs drivers, sets up the registry and installs .dll.

Its ok however I prefer not to use the .bat file and just build the .inf file into the installshield project if possible. I would like to get some information on how to accomplish this and I apologise for any ignorance in advance.

Much appreciated,

For one possibility, you might right-click a feature in the Setup Design view and select the Device Driver Wizard. The InstallShield 2008 help library has more information about the wizard and general settings.

Hi Robert,

Using the device driver wizard, can't we give an unsigned inf file for driver installation?

Can we create an msm for driver installation?

I need to install a printer driver and make that an msm project. But when i checked the Device Driver wizard it was not enabled.
I am trying to install a virtual printer. Using the standard API's I successfully created custom actions and msm project and it is working. But I want to know about a method to use inf file to install my printer.

Please help me....
