"The specifed location does not contain information about your hardware."

    I'm quite new in driver programming. I've been trying to updgrade a driver
    with
    a filter driver that I've build. During the installation my driver inf
    file,
    I'm always getting error, "The specifed location does not contain
    information about your hardware." in a "Select Device" dialog. Can any
    driver guru tell me which section in inf file is causing this problem?
    Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

    You probably haven't specified the PnP ID properly... I'd guess. Post
    the INF and perhaps someone can see the problem.

    Sorry I just have another question, no solutions.

    Which name is the following:

    PCI\VEN_10B9&DEV_7101&SUBSYS_00000000&REV_00\3&61AAA01&0&88

    Is that the Hardware ID (obviously not the GUID)? Is it system generated or
    defined by the programmer, or can it be either?

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Yes, that's the hardware ID. It's defined by the system, which is why
    mostly people put "*" at the end of their INF entries.

    Sorry, why the *? I'm reading Walter's book and going through the DDK docs
    and will probably find it eventually, I'm just being impatient.

    I was thinking of a different situation, and already canceled that
    article... sorry you saw it.

    Most of the pieces of the hardware ID are pretty obvious. This device is
    on a PCI bus. The device has PCI vendor ID 10B9, and device ID 7101. It
    has no subsystem ID and device ID. It declares revision number 00. All of
    that information comes from the PCI configuration space.

    The rest of the numbers are not so obvious, but in my experience, the next
    digit (3 in your case) comes from the slot number within the bus.
