HP Quick Launch Buttons
Posted 16 March 2011 - 08:55 AM
I am building a Windows 7 Pro SP1 WDS deployment build, and I am having trouble finding the .inf version of the HP Quick Launch Buttons.
Does anybody know where to find them. I have spent literally all day looking for them! I can't imagine HP (a business outfit) would offer drivers that can't be deployed as part of a mass image roll-out.

If you have InstallShield professional, there is a program in there called InstallShield Cabinet File Viewer that will let you extract the files out. I don't think you need the version of InstallShield that created the installer, for example this sp38266.exe was created with InstallShield 12 but I have InstallShield 10 and it worked.
Otherwise you will have to use InstallShield switches to do a file dump with Setup. I can never find the correct syntax for Setup, but you can try /extract_all. Or you can try recording the setup, or install the product on a system not using the silent and look to see if the files are extracted to a temporary folder.

What am I missing? I would rather have missing drivers in my build than extract all these files one-by-one!

Another option you may have is to Deploy the OS to the notebook. Then install the driver update manually. Take note of the HwIDs of the device, or check the log file. Then you can use a tool like DriverForge to extract the driver files. Then you can inject those. Only problem seems to be DriverForge is obsolete. I haven't tried the new program yet.
