Adding Drivers to Be Installed by WEPOS Setup

Adding Drivers to Be Installed by WEPOS Setup

WEPOS setup can detect and install all the devices whose drivers are included in Windows XP Service Pack 2.

If you want WEPOS Setup to detect and install drivers for devices not included in Service Pack 2, you can either use the /devicefile switch to point to an additional driver XML file on a network, or add drivers to the Setup disk.

To use the /devicefile switch to install drivers with Setup:

  1. Create an XML file using the driver installation schema definition.
  2. Use the /devicefile command-line switch to point to your additional driver XML file when you run the Setup wizard. The syntax is as follows:
Setup.exe /devicefile:pathname\driver_file

where pathname is a local or a UNC path to the file, and driver_file is the filename of the additional driver XML file you want to use.

Example:

Setup.exe /devicefile:OurDrivers.xml

Note: The driver files must be set to the normal attribute, not to read-only. If the driver files are set to read-only, this might result in an error in WEPOS installation.

To add drivers to the Setup Disk:

  1. Create an XML file named driverinstall.xml, using the driver installation schema definition.
  2. Place the driverinstall.xml file in the Setup folder of the WEPOS Setup disk.
