New for Device and Driver Installation
The Windows Driver Kit (WDK) that is released with Windows 7 includes new features for device and driver installation:
The name of the "Device Installation" section is changed to "Device and Driver Installation".
Beginning with Windows 7, device metadata packages contain XML documents that represent the properties of the device and its hardware functions. The Devices and Printers user interface displays device-specific information to the user based on the XML documents from the device's metadata package. For more information, see Device Metadata Packages.
