Creating an MSI to install device drivers
as posted by AngryTechnician
Has anyone found a reliable way to install device drivers (i.e with .inf file) to remote machines?
I have some USB devices that require drivers, and 350 or so PCs to install them on. I looked at devcon but that only offers the install option for local PCs.

I'll had a look at that thread thanks, I've used Orca before but never to install driver MSIs
If you can do it with devcon then why not just put that in a machine startup script? The only tricky thing is that you only want it to run once but that can be done by either setting a registry value or writing a flag file to say "driver installed":
Code:if exist %windir%\usb_driver1_installed goto end \\server\share\devcon <etc> <etc> echo installed > %windir%\usb_driver1_installed :end
