Installing msvad using Devcon

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Dear Team,

I am in the process of implementing Virtual Audio Driver and taken src-audio-msvad as reference. The readme says that the sample must be installed manually using devcon.

devcon install msvad.inf command results in:

devcon.exe: Invalid use of install.
For more information, type: devcon.exe help install

I want to start with vadsimpl. Is there any procedure to inform devcon to install msvad simple.

Regards.

    You should do something like

    Devcon.exe install msvad.inf *MSVADSimple

    *MSVADSimple is the hwid of the simple as specified in inf file.

    You can also install msvad from AddHardware wizard in control panel.

    If you are *very* quick when plugging in a non-preinstalled USB device,
    you can right-click on the bubble message "no driver found" to invoke
    the old hardware/driver installation wizard.
