Plug and Play support for USB devices NOT on Windows Update. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We manufacture a Microfilm scanner which uses a USB interface.  Previous versions of Windows supported plug and play installation of USB devices by automatically searching the CD/DVD drives and certain locations on the hadr drive such as winsysdir\inf.  Windows 7 only appears to support USB devices via Windows Update.

    Does anyone know any way other than by clicking though a series of about 8 so called help screens manually to install USB device drivers?  Our setup program is currently written in Installshield 2008 so we can script quite a lot of things, if we know what we need to do.
