inf SourceDisksFiles subdir problem

I have the following SourceDisksFiles section in my inf:


I tell the installer to look for the wdfcoinstaller01007.dll 2 folder levels up from the current directory.
This works fine on Win2K and XP but not on Vista.

Has anyone come across this before?



I’ve not really had the pleasure of using inf’s much, but have you tried replacing ‘…/…/’ with ‘…..?’ What you have right now is very un-windows, and wouldn’t be the strangest thing if when a change was made, someone didn’t consider that someone might use the unix style paths.

As I said, I don’t use INF’s much, so I may be totally incorrect, but it is at least easy to try.

If it doesn’t fix the problem, could you describe what happens when it ‘fails?’

Good luck,


It complains it can’t find the file.

I just redesigned the package directory structure to make all the files downstream of the inf.

It works now.
