How to create custom prerequisite (Bootstrapper package) for VS2008
Posted on 2012-09-12
I am trying to create a bootstrapper package of a USB device driver so that I can include the package as a prerequisite into my installer (I am using VS2008).
I use a program called the 'BMG' to generate the bootstrapper package.
The problem I have is this USB device driver comes in two files (.inf and .cat). They work fine as long as a user plugs the USB cable into a PC, and the Windows will automatically ask the user to locate the files.
But the scenario is if I want to get my installer to install the USB device driver (prior to installing an application program), I don't know how to do tell the bootstrapper as there isn't any .exe or .msi.
Thanks in advance.
