QuestionInstalling a filter driver Pin
MarkBrock1-Aug-12 2:09
memberMarkBrock1-Aug-12 2:09 
Hi all,

So this deep dive I am taking into the world of Windows driver development has got to the stage where I want to automate the installation of my driver.

Ultimately I am trying to quietly install and uninstall a system filter driver (so there is no 'attached device', it gets installed under System devices).

The driver I am trying to install at the moment is the cool example posted by Prikarna (Simple Serial Port Monitor).

I have been playing around with dpinst, which seems to pick up the .inf file, but shows the status as not needed, because there is 'no device for update'. So if dpinst is capable of installing Prikarna's driver, I suspect the issue is something in the .inf file.

#1. Is running dpinst in quiet mode with a VS2008 setup application a good approach for what I am trying to achieve?

If dpinst is a good approach..
#2. What are the key tags/sections that need to be added to an .INF file (or some other file?) to have dpinst install a filter driver under System Devices?

Thank you,
Mark.
