How do you do it: deploy an updated driver?
Mornin' all. Just found a fun problem with the ActiveTeach software here, in that it causes a massive handle leak in audiodg.exe and after 15 minutes of use that process is taking up half the system RAM and choking the whole computer to a halt. These being i3-550s with 2Gb of RAM, it shouldn't be happening.
Updating the Via 1708S integrated audio driver seems to mitigate the issue to a good enough extent that I want to roll it out to the 170 odd machines it applies to. Unfortunately I'm bugg3red if I can find a way to do it...
For whatever reason, the setup.exe refuses to run on the relevant machines, failing with an installshield 1608 error; I am presuming it's trying to access files currently in use as the setup runs fine on other machines, it only fails on the ones I need it to run on. I could probably track it down, but even if I do I'll still not be able to just roll the setup out with SCCM.
Driver packages in SCCM are only good for OS installation time, and I don't want to faff around reimaging everything for one audio driver for one curriculum software package.
I can update the driver manually from Device Manager using the relevant inf file, but I don't want to walk around 170 machines to do that, I'm supposed to be past chores like that now.
So riddle me this: how can I push out an updated driver across the network? Is there a scriptable way? A packageable way? An SCCM2012 way?
(Windows 7 SP1 x64, Server 2008R2, SCCM2012, fog... think that's everything relevant. Oh, and I'm rubbish at scripting, so I need my hand held with that)
