Fujitsu ScanSnap Drivers

Hello,
   I have created a silent installation for the Scansnap Manager and ScanSnap Organizer software to be installed on machines. I am hoping to use a packaging tool to roll this out called Enteo. The software package installation works fine. There are no issues with this part of installation.
    Scansnap installation is a two part installation. Part 1 - Software. Part 2 - Driver. I am having issues with the second part of the installation. Post the software installation the machine reboots and when you log in, the Add New Hardware Wizard begins. If you go through the wizard and do an automatic install of the driver it works fine. My issue is that i can't find the driver on the machine to package for installation.
   So I am trying to locate drivers only for Fujitsu Scansnap scanners (models: S510, S500 and fi-5110). Any ideas on how to do this or where to find them would be much appreciated.

You could try DriverMax. it will scan your system and search for drivers. Also, once you do find the drivers you need, you can use it to archive the drivers into subdirectories (.inf and .sys files). Then it would be easy for you to package them for installation.

Not sure if it is the drivers themselves you are looking for but start here:

Thanks TCB1,
   I've managed to locate the files nessasary for installation via the DriverMax utility (interesting program). Now my issue is installing the drivers silently and without using the Add Hardware Wizard. I thought i could record the installation with the packaging tool. I have had no success thus far. I have the vendor on hand with this issue they are contacting Japan to see if there is anything they can suggest. I really did think things would be easier once i had the driver files. Is there some form of in-built program in Windows that will install the driver files without going through a wizard?

Hmm. I think you can execute the .inf file via the command line with Rundll32.EXE. This hopefully would install the needed driver without the gui hardware wizard. I haven't tried this, so I don't know what will happen.

Tried to excute it via command line - unfortunately didn't work. Also tried right click on the .inf and then install, also didn't work. Tried copying driver files to the same locations as stated in Driver Manager, didn't work either.
    I've spoken to Fujitsu they are awaiting a response from Japan. I will post the answer if\when one comes back. unless one is found in the meantime. Thanks to both for your assistance.

You could try using an AutoIt script. It can automate installations and lots of other interesting things.

Fujitsu have replied to us saying they don't support this being done. We have tried the above, and that has not worked either. Many thanks for everyone's help. Think we're going to have to close as not possible
