What exactly is happening.

Hi,

What exactly does installdriver.exe do? regsvr32?

Thanks

No, its not a COM object (which is what RegSvr32 is for).

It installs the driver. The source code is all there on the website so not that difficult to have a look. All it does is load the InpOut DLL and make a call to Open(). This in turn causes inpout to extract and load (install) the embedded .SYS file.

All InstallDriver.exe does is ensure permissions are available to do this by running as admin.

Thanks,
Phil

Phil,

Thanks for the clarification. I downloaded all the files and found the source for the installdriver.exe. The file I was looking for was the binaries without source.
