Hi all,

I am packaging Nokia PC Suite 4.88 at the moment for a locked-down user environment and all is fine apart from the Infra-red aspect of the package.
The users don't have the rights to install new hardware so when the phone is connected to the Laptop for the first time the Add New Hardware wizard attempts to launch and this presents the user with a dialog box asking for user id and password.

I am using the driver file I downloaded from the Nokia Website.

My problem is that I can't seem to install the drivers for the infra-red without the phone connected via infra-red.
I have tried using Devcon.exe, DpInst.exe, DriverInstall.exe and DriverCopy.exe, all of which are the Exe’s we use to install Driver files through an msi and none of them work unless the phone is connected to the laptop – via infra-red.

What I want to be able to do is to install the drivers through the msi without the phone connected so that when the user logs on and connects their phone through infra-red that it is picked up in the "Device Manager" as the "Nokia6310i".

Any ideas or suggestions?

I tested this without the Nokia package installed on a clean build and performed the following.

Logged in as Admin:
On a clean build without the Nokia package installed I tried to connect the phone to the laptop via the infra-red port. The Laptop detects the phone and tries to install the hardware via the Add New Hardware wizard.
- At the “Welcome to the Found New Hardware Wizard” dialog – select No, not this time and click Next.
- When asked “What do you want the wizard to do? – Choose “Install from a list or specific location(Advanced)” and click Next
- “Please choose your search and installation options. – Choose don’t search. I will choose the driver to install.” And click Next
- Next click “Have Disk” and browse to the location of the INF file that Nokia supplied – Nokia6310iIrDa.inf – “I had this on a USB drive so copied to C:\Windows\inf and browsed to there”
- Click OK and Next and then Finish.
The Driver is now installed.

Once this is done the phone is then installed for every user and there are no dialog boxes asking for User ID’s or passwords.

The problem I encountered though is that when you try to do the above installation the first time you connect the phone it fails and the Nokia6310i driver doesn’t work.
I discovered that if you let windows install a Standard IR Modem through the Add New Hardware Wizard and then uninstall the same one, you are then able to install the Nokia 6310i driver.
