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:

Device and Driver Installation Section

  • The name of the "Device Installation" section is changed to "Device and Driver Installation".

Device Metadata Packages

  • 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.
