I would like to use powershell or some other script mechanism to install drivers for a particular device (samsung digital presenter). I can do this through the gui by opening device manager, right-clicking the device, selecting update driver software, and then browsing to the location where I have dropped the driver files.

Is it possible to script this out?

Often you can get the driver files in an executable or msi file from the vendor.  These have standard silent installation methods for scripting.

How would you like to automate driver installation? Would you be using a deployment tool or pushing them through GPO or like?
