Automatic detection of INF Driver in Windows XP
Posted on 2009-04-20
We have a Vehicle Tracking Unit that we developed which connects to a PC via a USB port. The drivers for this unit is a simple INF file. When the user plugs the unit to the PC via the USB port, he has to browse to this INF file and Windows does the rest. Is there a location I can copy this INF file to so that when the user connects the units to the PC for the first time, Windows automatically finds this driver file? I see there is a hidden folder in the Windows folder called Inf (i.e. C:\Windows\Inf). If I copy the INF file into that folder, will Windows XP automatically find it?
