I am trying to create a WiX installer that should install USB drivers as well. It installs the application but not drivers. In the log file I have:

DIFXAPP: INFO: Installing INF file 'driver.inf' (Plug and Play).

DIFXAPP: INFO: Looking for Model Section ... DIFXAPP: INFO: No matching devices found in INF "driver.inf" on the Machine.

DIFXAPP:INFO: No drivers installed. No devices found that match driver(s) contained in 'driver.inf'.

DIFXAPP: INFO: RETURN: DriverPackageInstallW (0xE000020B) DIFXAPP: INFO: The device(s) for which the driver is being installed has not been plugged into the computer.

I have found (here) that it might be a case that Product/Manufacturer can be different from the Inf`s manufacturer. But how can I check the manufacturer of the inf file? It has this section, but I am not sure how to read it:


If you asking for product/manufacture of usb addon, then simply go to System > Devices Manager > right click on usb: Properties > Details > Device Identification Should be something similar to PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_6742&SUBSYS_1D821043&REV_00

You should make correct edition of inf to resamble your usb ID

  • Well the problem is that I dont have an actual device - only inf. And is that "PCI... " string I should put as a manufacturer for WiX Product? – JleruOHeP Jul 16 '14 at 12:17
  • I am confused. Why are you trying to install a device driver for a device that you don't have? – Ramhound Jul 16 '14 at 12:35
  • That application is not for me - I just have to make an installer – JleruOHeP Jul 16 '14 at 12:49
