    Hi,

    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?

    Thanks,
    Kota.

    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.
