@RBerteig - the more astounding part of that is that you have a working PDP-11.

comment What are the Windows A: and B: drives used for?
@thrillscience - I felt vaguely guilty even while I was typing that. At my last job one of the hardware engineers had a 3.5" floppy USB drive so he could run one of the old schematic capture programs in DOS mode on a PC. Or so he claimed, I never once saw that drive move from under its thick coating of dust.

comment change USB vendor id / product id
@Hugh Allen - I'm sorry, I hadn't clicked through to the link in your question earlier. I didn't understand you were looking to change the VID/PID numbers. The info I gave you would only have changed the strings. The INF files depend on the VID/PID numbers, not define them. Sorry to lead you down the wrong path.

comment change USB vendor id / product id
@Hugh Allen - the only other thing I can recommend is looking for your existing device in Registry\HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet, finding the name string, finding the VID/PID, and looking for those VID/PID number in the INF files. However, if the app you're trying to fool uses the VID/PID directly, this technique won't work.

@Hugh Allen - can you provide some more info? For instance, what kind of device, which bus is it on, how does the application recognize that it's not the expected device?

@justin - Wonderful, thanks. The apt-get remove lines were exactly what I was looking for.
