Hi,

I've a small driver bringing my application in ring0 to access hardware.
Unfortunately the FBA does not install the associated inf-file as it is not
related to any hardware.
Hence I now install it mannually and commit the change.
Is there a way to tell FBA to install this driver ?

Thanks, Wolfgang

Wolfgang,

You can use devcon command line utility to automate the installtion for a no
hardware or non-PnP driver.
A command like : "devcon install INFfile HardwareID" will do that if you set
it up as FBA Generic Command.

Some more info about devcon:

Another way would be for you to capture all the files and registry entries
required for the driver and pre-populate them within TD Configuration.
To capture the files/registry entries you can use tools like RegSnap,
InCtrl5, Regmon.
