Hi,

I'm probably not the first one asking this -but I couldn't find an answer to this problem:

How can I install a unsigned (as it is still beta) NDIS network driver, given the *.sys and *.inf files?
Obviously you can't use the wizards in InstallShield or Wise products...is there any solution for this?

Thanks a lot,

Peter

The only solution I found, was to change the Policy to accept unsigned drivers.

Hi peter:

Have u tried this:

Executing the following line via the MSI:

• Rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %1 (for installing a device driver)
• Rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultUnInstall 132 %1 (for uninstalling a device driver)

Where %1 is the path and file name of the inf file to install/uninstall.

All required files have to be in the same directory, so copy the file to the location where the .inf and the drivers are located

Or try to make your own catalog file using the MakeCat utility from Microsoft.

(i haven't tested this)
