Compress drivers to save space on removable media
Program is open source, so open for improvement. Suggestions are welcome.
Compressed drivers can get installed as any normal driver:
- manual installation
- WHQL kept
- Smaller files on installation media
- Seperate drivers from the extra's.
Copy compress.cmd to the driver dir and execute it.
The detected driver files are created in new subdirectories, so make sure you have write-access.
When you receive errors running the batch or the result is not as expected please tell me on which driver this behaviour occured and if possible provide me a downloadlink to the driver package
- Driver Compressor only processes inf's in the directory it's working directory.
