Yes, you can just use
TCHAR* pCmd = _T("rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hdwwiz.cpl");
 

ShellExecute(NULL,_T("open"),pCmd,NULL,NULL,SW_SHOW);

Open in new window

Thanks.  Is there a way to have it pre-select an INF file so that I won't have to browse for it?

No, sorry, not that I am aware of - that "interface" is very sparse and not officially documented.
