Every Printer or scannar folder has other files in it (mst, exe, ini, cab...). How do I combine all of these and form a package out of it??

a few questions:

1) What OS(es) are you targeting?

2) Are the drivers signed?

3) What authoring tool do you have available?

  • my os is win7, I believe the drivers are signed and I am using Adminstudion 11.5. IS there a way to use DPINST?
  • I would NOT use dpinst directly but use the DifxApp merge module by following the procedure Piyush refers to in his answer.
    Be aware though that when using DifxApp there can only be one driver per folder in the MSI, otherwise you'll run into trouble.
  • If the drivers turn out to be unsigned, don't even start packaging them. Get them signed first, either by contacting the vendor for updated versions, or by signing them yourself

It is very easy to create Device Driver Packages with Admin Studio Installshield.

Follow my post here for step by step method:
