[Utility] Driver Backup Searches for and backs up installed device drivers
Posted 12 October 2006 - 04:12 PM
I haven't been able to figure out what goes wrong, but somehow things get messed-up.
I added a screenshot of the error...anyone having this issue too? + a solution?
Thx in advance;)

I will have a look and let you know about my findings;)
Sorry m8....it still keeps crashing with script errors.
I only could run this app once succesfully - actually, it only ran great at the very first time I tried it on a XP box.
If you would like to have some more info...just let me know and I will collect it;)

Great idea with great potential. I really like the idea of such a tool.
I tried this tool a while back. I tested it on a Dell Latitude D410 notebook and selected to backup ALL non-Microsoft drivers. I thought it hung, so I aborted it and never tried it again
Just now I just gave it another try, using the same system but this time I backed up only one driver.
The first driver I ask it to backup took over 5 minutes just to backup 3 tiny files:
What's taking so long?

I am sure there are alot of similar programs out there. I personally use Driver Genius Professional for the last few years.
It is no doubt the best on the market. It can backup, backup to zip, backup to self-extracting EXE, backup to auto-install EXE, search, download and update new drivers, etc, etc, etc, It's only US30 for the Pro - I think it's well worth it.
But I am constantly looking for one that is good, stable, AND FREE FOR COMMERCIAL use (for work really). So far I have yet to find such a thing. Sorry, Double Driver is light years away...

Driver genius isn't free for the full version, and I've had the free version miss files.
Mine is free for anyone to use, and though it may still have a few bugs, it will pull all of the files for a driver that it finds.
I'm currently working on an updated version which is faster. The file search is the slowest part of the application and I've managed to narrow the searches and speed them up but there are still a few issues before I release it for general consumption.

Running Win2k sp4
Hit scan machine and got;

Hit backup drivers and got;
backup path: c:\driverbackup
working folder: c:\docume~1\admini~1\locals~1\temp
listbox line: d-link dfe-530tx+ pci adapter
driver caption: d-link dfe-530tx+ pci adapter
locating drivers for d-link dfe-530tx+ pci adapter
creating folder: c:\driverbackup\d-link dfe-530tx+ pci adapter
Then it stops with an internet explorer script error.
!An error has occured in the script on this page.
error: could not complete the operation due to error 80041017
url: file://c:\documents and settings\administrator\local
Happens every time backing up 1 driver, several, or all.
I'm hoping the next version will fix it.

Error: No value given for one or more required parameters
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?
And when I press yes nothing happens.
When I press backup again there comes other error message.
Error: Operation is not allowed when the object is open
YES / NO
And I can not do anything with this prog.
