I am trying to solve a problem with devcon for which I need to locate the INF file for a device driver.

I can find out which device driver a device is using via the device manager (driver details). It will point me to the driver, in my case, stored in C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\e1i63x64.sys.

Where can I find the corresponding INF file?

  • Look for the corresponding folder in C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository

The .inf file will be located in a corresponding folder (in your case, the folder name should start with e1i63x64) inside the following directory:

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository

May be very late to share but there is an easier way to do this!

  1. Open Device Manager : Win + R > devmgmt.msc

  2. Scroll and find the driver of interest

  3. Right click and select "Properties" from pop-up menu.
  4. In the next window, go to "Details" tab.
  5. From the "Property" drop-down list, select Inf Name. Value pane should show the correct inf name for this driver now.

The value should show the inf name. example, value may look something like > oem100.inf

Next open "cmd" as administrator and enter the following command > dism /Online /get-drivers /format:table > C:\temp\drivers.txt

Open this file in text editor and you should see a table like structure and search for the name of the INF file from Step-6 above. Next, locate the filename printed next to it.

For example, if INF name is oem100.inf the value next (to the right) could look something like e1d65x64.inf

Next Step, take this name (for example, e1d65x64) and copy.

Next Step, go to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository, and paste the previously copied text into search bar.

Wait till search ends.

Hope this helped!
