    I heard that, using Visual studio & microsoft installet, driver
    installation package can be created, if anyone knows about the
    approach, could you please guide me.
    I am having the .sys, inf, .dll & .exe files as a package, i know
    about using Application wizard these files can be placed whereever we
    wish, but how to install the driver from here?

    The DPInst tool, included with the DDK, can install a driver package from
    its INF. It can be called from a standard Windows installer package. You
    can find helpful information by searching for "wix dpinst".

    You could also take a look at DIFxApp, which is a MSI merge module that you
    can integrate with you MSI package and it will do the driver installation
    for it. DIFxApp ships in the WDK.
