Add new HW Wizard - how to auto install a nonPnp Device

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Drivers' started by Mario Dambauer, Feb 3, 2004.

  1. Hi all..

    I have a Nokia30 GPRS Modem which has no Pnp. So when I plug in the modem,
    it is not detected by add new hardware wizard.
    To install the modem I do the following:
    1) start HW Wizard
    2) select Yes, HW is alreday connected
    3) Add a new HW Device
    4) install from a list
    5) Modems
    6) dont detect my modem, I will select it from a list
    7) Then I select the modem and define a COM port.

    now the modem works.

    But I have the install the modem at 100+PC's, so I want to automate the
    install process!

    Is there any way per script or code to do the same as I described

    Thanks in advance,

  2. Buy the PnP-compatible GPRS modems :) Ericsson 520 is fine and cheap, for

    When the question is about equipping 100 machines, changing the vendor can
    make sense.

  3. DevCon is not going to work for Modem class devices -- reason being that
    Modem class devices need to register a "com" port for their use and hence
    are different than general installation methods.

    Look at KB304294 (;EN-US;Q304294 )

    The sample is a modified version of "Install" sample, and the idea is very
    simple. Give it a try...
