I've recently finished making a h/w independent XPsp2 WIM image for my workplace. The WIM's sysprep.inf's PNP path property points at multiple folders, each folder containing drivers for the various desktop and laptop models in my workplace. Everything is tickity-boo (sorry to be so technical), BUT....

When some manufacturer (let's say Panasonic) makes a laptop (let's say the W7) which uses a particular NIC (let's say a Marvell Yukon 88e8050 PCI Express Gigabit Controller), and though I've searched high and low, the driver for this from both Marvell Yukon and from Panasonic is only available as a setup.exe, but PNP needs INFs. I'm aware there are driver extraction utilities and stuff like that - but what do most people do when presented with drivers from the vendor all compressed into a single EXE?

You've probably already checked this but if you run the "setup.exe" does it place any files/folders in "temp" folders; e.g .C:\Temp or the temp folder under the Local Settings folder of your profile?

Okay, I feel sheepish.

I do that all the time to get the MSIs out of SETUP.EXE but stunningly didn't make the logical step that driver installation EXEs would dump there too. Thanks Brian.
