I'm a newbie for fs driver.
I have followed the steps in this doc to create the inf file. But this file lacks the hardware ids which is required when install with devcon. So what is the right way to install a fs driver. Many thanks!

I usually do a right click install from explorer.
For production I use wix (although AIUI that relies on a DifX which has been deprecated - although no one has yet told us what the correct technology to use is)
At least one open source project that I am aware of uses wix and an appropriate rundll command..
Others will have more details I am sure, but that should get you going.
Thanks , I'll try it.
As far as I understand there is one open source fs that installs as a volume filter (and has the appropriate support, has AddDevice) What do you think of this setup? The advantage is that it is something that formally fits in to the driver model so that it can be installed with an "real" INF that follows all the rules in the documentation!
File systems are just kernel services, there's no FDO/PDO/devnode, etc. An NTv4 style INF installed with InstallHInfSection is perfectly reasonable.
thank you. Right click just work for me!
