Hi,
I need to install my DirectConn.inf modem driver
during the installation process, I must install it silently.

In other words, I have to install that driver .inf
automatically from the script (.rul) file without ask
the user to install it through the control panel.
The user doesn't have to know anything about the
modem; he has to find it already installed !

Thank you for your help.

Unfortunately we don't have any script functions designed specifically for installing drivers using an inf file or to detect if a modem is already installed.

You would most likely have to either call the appropriate Windows API(s) from your script or call a DLL function from your script that does this.

There may be some samples at: http://www.installsite.org that may help you with this.
