    Unhappy Auto install USB driver


    I'm using an USB modem with an .INF file which uses usbser.sys.
    When i connect the modem, the user is asked for driver.
    The driver works fine.

    My problem is, that i use several different modems of the same type and
    each time i connect such a modem I'm asked for the driver again.

    Is it possible to install the driver once and new modems are automatically
    installed without user interaction?
    Just like USB Sticks!

    Re: Auto install USB driver

    I have the same question. This is quite an old post and I hope to bump it so that someone will answer.

    My situation is slightly different. I have my own custom HID USB device and I have created software and an .inf file that works. The only problem I have is implementing the .inf so that when I plug in my custom device things are installed automatically like they would be if I bought a wireless keyboard. When you plug in the USB receiver it starts installing the drivers and notifies you in the system tray. Almost every USB HID has this component and I would like to implement it on my own HID USB. I feel like it is not as user friendly if they have to install the drivers manually.

    Look forward to your advice.
