Hi,
Need a bit of trouble shooting advise
Until now I have successfully slipstreamed drivers to win7 x64
However now have x4 drivers that will not slipstream,
I noticed each driver in question contain small .exe files & wondered if this was the issue,
Does anyone in msfn know of a work arround solution I could try?

Drivers are
Alps Pointing-device (2-way)
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4225
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 Series
ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics

Cheers.

Install the drivers like you normally would, then go to the following folder, sort by date and retrieve the drivers for slipstreaming

%WinDir%\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository
This way you can be assured that no files will be missing and integration will not fail (BTW you can delete the .PNF file)

@Ricktendo64
Thanks very much for your quick reply & the solution it works 100% :thumbup
I wonder why 3rd party apps sometimes fail at getting all the correct driver data for slipstreaming?

Its very hard, they have to look under the SourceDisksFiles section and find/copy the files listed there to be backed up...plus there different driver inf's have different format styles. I have also seen times where there are two SourceDisksFiles sections and other times where the files are not listed in SourceDisksFiles but are instead copied by the CoInstaller

Who better than Windows itself to know exactly what files to copy, and even better that Windows Vista/7 conveniently back up the driver to the DriverStore so we can just grab it for the future with none of the setup junk
