how to install a Ndis protocal driver through installshield?

Hi,my friends,now i have a question about install ndis protocal driver,i have .inf and .sys?i want use installshield to intall it ,but now i don’t know how to do it .
thank you very much indeed.

Your installer needs to call a utility that uses the INetCfg API tools to
programmatically install the driver.

The WDK network\config\bindview sample application illustrates using this
API. Some additional information can be found here:

Good luck!

I recomend you use DIFx by specifing a driver package type of Network.

If you are installing the remainder of whatever needs this protocol using an MSI package, then the DIFxAPP mechanism will work nicely.

If you are writing your own installer, you can do so with DIFxAPI or as Thomas suggests, you can extract the necessary logic from BindView or the older (2K/XP DDKs) netcfg example (snetcfg).

But you say you are using InstallShield. Recent versions of that toolset have a ‘driver install wizard’ that generates MSIs that use DIFxAPP. InstallShield can handle a Network style driver package and install a protocol just fine.
