Inf2Cat Properties for Driver Package Projects

Sets the properties for the Inf2Cat tool. The Inf2Cat tool can be used to create catalog files for any driver package that has an INF file.

Setting Inf2Cat properties for driver package projects

  1. Open the property pages for your driver package. Right-click the driver package project in Solution Explorer and select Properties.
  2. In the property pages for the driver package, click Configuration Properties and then click Inf2Cat.
  3. Select the Run Inf2Cat option. This option runs the Inf2Cat tool on any INF files in the project (for example, .inf, .inx, or .inv files).

If the driver package is installed by using an INF file, use the Inf2Cat tool to create the catalog file. Inf2Cat validates that files referenced in the INF file are present in the package. To add files to the package, use the property pages for the package project and driver project. See Creating a Driver Package for more information.
