we get the drivers from the official sites and extract the files.

How to extract some of those is poorly documented.

Well not these nVidia drivers, they have a readme.txt sugesting they are not the regular installer (there for manual INF search/install)

BTW where is it that you guys download the files for the DriverPacks, I notice its not a regular installer its just the INF and other files

Hello again. I wonder if anybody still had DriverPack Grafix A v6.11

The reason I need it is because I have a old PCI Geforce 5 card and it only works good with the driver v6.14.10.9371, so if anybody had it I would really appreciate it if you extracted the D\G\N\1 folder and uploaded it somewhere

I know its very old and unlikely anybody still has this
ty in advance

No you did nothing wrong m8... Some devices use the same INF

BTW this driver backup tool is better, it renames the INF and CAT files http://www.msfn.org/board/Utility-Drive … 83960.html

I am happy to report that the 1st .ini entries (the devcon ones) worked like a charm... No more Plug n Play monitor on 1st boot big_smile


Thanks all

Yea I found that typo mr_smartpants thanks

Does exc_1_+hwids = do what I think it does?

Temporarily adding that device to the registry so it can be installed/updated?

I was also looking at the sound pack, would something like this work also?

exc_count	= 1
exc_1_tagFiles	= 2
exc_1_tagFile1	= "%SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\P17.sys"
exc_1_tagFile2	= "%DPSROOT%\D\S\CR2\Ctzapxx.ini"
exc_1_+hwids	= 0
exc_1_-hwids	= 0
exc_1_+infFiles	= 1
exc_1_+infFile1	= "%DPSROOT%\D\S\CR2\*.inf"
exc_1_-infFiles	= 0
exc_1_commands	= 1
exc_1_command1	= "%DPSROOT%\D\S\CR2\CTZapxx.Exe /S"

I know how to install it, I just want to know if maybe it could install like my other drivers in my personal DriverPack (this is the only one which wont install)

The reason is I like to set my screen resolution to have it on 1st boot to 1052x864 with nLite but the max I can get with the Plug and Play driver is 1024x768 (only after I install my monitor driver will I have the option for higher rez)

Does my INI look ok Jaak?

Hey guys was wondering if anybody could help me make a .ini file that would install my monitor using devcon?
My monitor driver wont install, I keep getting the plug and play default driver. My monitor is a SAMSUNG SyncMaster 591s

I think I need a .ini file to have my monitor install, kinda like this one:

exc_count		= 1
exc_1_tagFiles	= 0
exc_1_+hwids	= 1
exc_1_+hwid1	= "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00DF&SUBSYS_E0001458&REV_A2"
exc_1_+hwid2	= "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00DF&SUBSYS_02501462&REV_A2"
exc_1_+hwid3	= "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00DF&SUBSYS_A5511297&REV_A2"
exc_1_-hwids	= 0
exc_1_+infFiles	= 0
exc_1_-infFiles	= 0
exc_1_commands	= 2
exc_1_command1	= "%SystemDrive%\devcon.exe update %DPSROOT%\D\L\NV\3\nvnetbus.inf "PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_00DF&SUBSYS_*""
exc_1_command2 	= "%SystemDrive%\devcon.exe update %DPSROOT%\D\L\NV\3\nvenetfd.inf "{1a3e09be-1e45-494b-9174-d7385b45bbf5}\NVNET_DEV00DF""

Here is the driver http://www.sokoolz.com/addons/r64/Samsung.cab

And my HWID

DISPLAY\SAM0116\5&7E4A37B&0&11335577&01&00                  : SyncMaster 591s/591v/594MG/591SG

I kind of understand how to make a .ini but just need a little help with this device, thanks

EDIT: How does this look?

platform	= "wnt5_x86-32"
name		= "Ricks AIO"
rootDir		= "D\"
classes		= "Display,Media,Mouse,Net,Processor,SCSIAdapter,System"
driverCount	=
decompSize	= "180"
compSize	= "50"

exc_count		= 1
exc_1_tagFiles	= 0
exc_1_+hwids	= 1
exc_1_+hwid1	= "DISPLAY\SAM0116\5&7E4A37B&0&11335577&01&00"
exc_1_-hwids	= 0
exc_1_+infFiles	= 0
exc_1_-infFiles	= 0
exc_1_commands	= 2
exc_1_command1	= "%SystemDrive%\devcon.exe update %DPSROOT%\D\3\R\M\SM591s.inf "DISPLAY\SAM0116\5&7E4A37B&0&11335577&01&00""

Hey thanks for turning me onto devcon, but I am having problems with the command lines

I have tried everything, keep getting "devcon failed"

Here is how its regularly installed

To install the driver on Windows XP / Windows Server 2003 :

1.  In Control Panel, double-click to start the Add/Remove Hardware utility.
2.  Select Add a new hardware device.
3.  Select Yes, I have already connected the hardware. Click Next.
4.  Select Add a new device.
5.  Select Install the hardware that I manually select from a list. Click Next.
6.  Select Show All Devices.
7.  Select Have Disk button and navigate to the ENG , FRE or GER subfolder that contains the RAMDriv.inf
     file for the respective English , French or German version of the ramdisk.
8.  Select Next , Next , Finish.

Is it possible to make a DriverPack to have this driver to install, maybe using a driverpack .ini file?

I have a full version but here is a trial version that is the same

There is a .Net All In One installer by RyanVM you can make into a AddOn with versions 1.1, 2.0 & 3 http://tracker.ryanvm.net/

Updated w/ BASE v7.05.1

I'm switching up my AddOn naming just like DriverPacks BASE, its gonna look like this from now on ProgramName1.5_AddOn_v7.05.18 [Year.Month.Date]

Its gonna take a while, but I will change it only when there is a update for that program addon

I know even I get confused sometimes tongue

I could not wait any longer so I went ahead and RELEASED IT HERE, if its a problem let me know and I will discontinue it

BTW Updated a few lines in the addon (nothing major only switched to 7-Zip and changed some Support Info in Add/Remove Programs also some Start Menu InfoTips)

Download link and MD5 checksum updated above

Hey sKz welcome to the team smile

I only need the base not all the driverpacks. Can somebody upload it to a file sharing site?

EDIT: nvm I used my browser's download instead of my Download Accelerator and the download works now

I was looking like crazy for the NEW entries to translate but I could not find them... Now I know why tongue

EDIT I cant download the new base sad

Thanks OverFlow... Never crossed my mind to look there

EDIT: Does this look right?

OK I use 3rd party driverpacks that I personally make. Here are some questions I have:

- Do I need the INI file for my 3rd party packs?
- Whats the purpose of the INI file?
- Can somebody explain this in detail?
