I need assistance and /or examples of installing device drivers using the Microsoft DPInst for Windows Driver installation kit. (Or if there is a better way, I am all ears)
I am using a FTDI usb to com port adapter. I would like to install the device driver when / before I install my customers application software whis uses the installed device.
Can anyone point me in the direction of examples on how I might get started?
Is DPInst part of Visual Studio 2008? If not, is it an integration or a standalone.
I would assume it copied the drivers to the DIFx Driver Store for use when you plug the device in for the 1st time. I am not sure what it does if the device is not plugged in? Sorry but I fell fairly ignorant here and would appreciate any assistance on finding an example application.
Reference Info (just in case you have direct experence with FTDI)
actual product I am using is sold by digikey P/N 813-1003-ND
