Automatic NDIS driver installation

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hi All!

I have been write an Intermediate NDIS driver, which filter IP
traffic. For driver installation I use oemsetup.inf, shipped
with Microsoft IMSAMP driver, and NCPA applet.
But my driver is just part of the other product, and it would be
nicely if I can install driver and tune up bindings for it, while
main product installation run.

Can I do that, and what I do need to do?

Any help is appreciate

With Regards Aidar Talibzhanov ([email protected])

    Installation is not well documented.

    See "The Little Device Driver Writer".

    See Windows NT 4.0 DDK -> Programmers Guide -> Chapter 2 Driver
    Installation.

    See also Windows NT 4.0 DDK -> Programmers Guide -> Appendix A Legacy Driver
    Installation Methods.

    The real answer is that you must use an oemsetup.inf script, in conjunction
    with the network applet, to correctly install your driver. Advice I
    received was to pick an already existing oemsetup.inf file and "tweak" it
    until it installs your driver. This is a headache, but it works.

    Best of Luck,

    --Christine

    Once you have created an OEMSETUP.INF file for your driver, look at
    Microsoft technical artical Q162771.
