Until recently I didn't know you could have a different driver loaded for different instances of the same device.
I was under the impression that when windows chose a driver for a device, that driver was used for all instances of the device.
To get it to do this, I right clicked one of the device instances in device manager and selected "update driver" then browsed to the folder where my driver is.
After it updated, I noticed that the other instance of the device was still using the older driver from a different company.
It may sound odd, but this behavior can actually be useful for me in certain cases.
Does anyone know if this is "by design" or just a "happy accident"?
The OS is windows server 2019.
