When we try to remove our NDIS LWF using
netcfg -u, i notice that it doesn't remove it from the driver store (can be seen with
This is causing problem because on some Windows 10 machines, if we uninstall the previous version of our NDIS LWF and install the new one, for some unknown reason the old inf is still used to install it! And i assume its because the inf still has the same componentID? We are updating the INF file in order to attach to some virtual adapters that we previously couldn't attach.
So my questions are:
Why is Windows still using the previous INF from driver store when we try to install the new updated driver that has a different INF?
What is the proper way to fully remove the previous NDIS LWF, including from driver store? If we need to use pnputil to fully remove it from driver store, then what is the proper way of finding the OEM number, considering that
pnputil -drequires an OEM number?
