Hi.

How i get Windows XP to detect new devices with Autoit3, like i can do from Windows Device Manager? I have SCSI scanner and i should do that action, if i want use it after boot when scanner power has been off on startup.

Devices are detected by XP for it has either a generic driver installed, a OEM driver, or the manafactor followed a specification set by Microsoft to support plug and cuss(Play). Are you trying to install something that windows can't see?

That SCSI scanner is desinged to start same time when Windows start, but it can also start after startup, if i search it from Device Manager - Windows not seems to detect it automaticaly without it. No any driver setup on startup is needed.

You can download the devcon package. You proabably want the version in the i368 folder after download is extracted.

Run("devcon.exe rescan")

Thanks! That works... Seems that in URL has error (that " -mark), but here working link: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=311272. Edited by mikkokh
