Hi Experts,

I have develop a filter driver call myfilter.sys, now I want to write a program to let user can click on this to installer my filter driver.
As i know we can right click on .inf and chose install to run a .inf file to installer a filter driver. BUT for me, I want to have a program as .exe or .bat file that User just click on this to install.

Can you help me to give some ideas or example about this?

Thank in advance!

Hi,

an *.inf file is a textfile ... if you know the format you can create it youself with a textpad...

oh, I am not mentioned about how to create .inf file.
My question is about how to run .inf file with command line or orther exe program, or winbat file.

I have .inf file already. now I want to let user just click on my program that will auto run .inf file to install the filter webcam.

Please help again?

If you want to access the *.inf file from a setup application please have a look at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms790206.aspx

But you have to write the program yourself...

Or try
rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 <path_to_file>.inf

discussed here...
