I've just created a Driver Package using Wise Package Studio 7 for the newest X-Fi drivers which our School Music Department have installed in their machines.

Using a mix of the PNP Driver Template posted here and the intructions on https://adelie.ucs.ed.ac.uk/dstwiki/index.php/device%20drivers. The packe looks perfect, I can't see anything wrong with it, yet while depolying via a GPO it just appears to hang on the install. It just sits there trying to install. I've left it for about 20mins and it still hadn't finished. It's not that large, weighing in at 18mb (the original Creative bundle was 26mb!) so I wouldn't have expected it to take more than 3-5 minutes.

After about 30 mins of waiting I decided to restart the test machine to see if anything had been applied. To my surprise, everything was installed where it shoul dbe and the Soundcard had now picked up it's device driver and was working perfectly.

So I'm a little stumped now, the package seems to do what I need, but yet I it hangs.

Anyone have any suggestions for things I might have missed?

Please ignore this, I have now fixed it. After looking at the Event Log Remotely from another machine i could see there are 4 DLL files it refused to register. On closer inspection the four files are WOW64 drivers added into the XP Driver set (no idea why).

After removing these from the package it works perfectly.
