Hi, everyone!

I'm now trying to inject some audio drivers into the win7 install.wim using DISM. DISM reports error and I finally came to the conclusion that the file wdmaudio.inf in install.wim\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\wdmaudio.inf_x86_neutral_aed2a4456700dfde may be the problem. It has a very strange look:

function DoAdd(oPickList, anOptionValue, anOptionText)
{
...


I've never seen an .inf file like this!! How can it be an .inf file?!! Another strange thing is that the file wdmaudio.inf in install.wim\Windows\inf is quite normal:

;; The audio inf file for WDM core files.

[Version]
Signature="$Windows NT$"
Class=MEDIA
ClassGUID={4d36e96c-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
Provider=%MSFT%
DriverVer=07/13/2009,6.1.7600.16385

[SourceDisksNames]
3426=windows cd

[SourceDisksFiles]
drmk.sys = 3426
drmkaud.sys = 3426
portcls.sys = 3426
sysfxui.dll = 3426
wmalfxgfxdsp.dll = 3426
...


How can it be? Anyone who has some clue please let me know. Thanks in advance:)

The file appears to be for a Vista or Windows 7 sidebar gadget.

I've got no idea, but under no circumstances can it be an .inf file! Don't you think so?

Yes it is possible. Info on this type of file is pretty slim, so I am guessing real info on creating them are on websites behind password, such as Partner level access for Microsoft sites. I found one post on MSDN Social where someone was creating a Vista sidebar gadget and this sort of code was present in his post. Unfortunately, I'm not about to log into MS Partner to search around for you, since everything in there is NDA anyways.

Thanks a lot. BTW, I noticed that once Windows 7 is installed, the file in \Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\wdmaudio.inf_x86_neutral_aed2a4456700dfde is just the same as the one in \Windows\inf. It's really interesting:)
