Custon Icon for Biometric class (Windows XP)

Dear All,

I have a driver for my USB device which I want to classify under
biometric class (WinXP doesn’t have biometric class).
I created a new class with biometric GUID (Supplied by Microsoft) and
successfully got my device under biometric.
My problem was, now I want to show my custom Icon against my device in
device manager.

Is that possible? If possible please send me the link, how to do that.

Thanks in advance,
Regards,
Ramya.

You need to write a class installer DLL.

Or use one of predefined icons (we use -24 for this purpose which is probably for HID devices). It is documented in the DDK, chapter INF ClassInstall32 Section:
The system uses the specified icon to represent your installer to the user.
* If the Icon value is positive, it represents a resource identifier for a resource. The resource will be extracted from the class installer DLL, if the Installer32 key is specified, or from the property page DLL, if the EnumPropPages32 key is specified. The value “0” represents the first icon in the DLL. The value “1” is reserved.
* If the Icon value is negative, the absolute value represents a predefined icon. See SetupDiDrawMiniIcon <di-rtns_08ky.htm> for a list of the predefined icons. For example, “-18” specifies the “Unknown” icon (18).
