Install .inf file from command prompt?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know how to install a .inf file other than rightclicking and choosing "Install"? Id like to install it from cmd or maybe autoit can do it even better using some other way...

change path and inf file name to match what you need and give it a try

Runwait (@systemdir & "\rundll32.exe syssetup,SetupInfObjectInstallAction DefaultInstall 128 " & $pathtoinf & "\your.inf","",@SW_HIDE)

printer drivers?

I am not sure what device you are trying to install - but if you go to add remove hardware or device manager I am sure you can install it from there - just find the icon with a RED X or the yellow Exclamation Point and update the driver with the INF file.

All by me:
