I am trying to install a device driver from the command line using the following:
RUNDLL32.EXE SETUPAPI.DLL,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 .\<driver>_x64.inf
Unfortunately nothing seems to be happening. The device continues to show as unknown in the Device Manager.
However, if I go into Windows Explorer, right-click on the .INF file and select "Install", it does install successfully.
So my question is: Why won't the above command line work for me? (I got this from here)
If I got some sort of error dialog appearing, that would helpful but I'm getting nothing at all. What do I need to do to mimic the right-click "Install" behaviour?
I have also tried this on two different machines - both Windows 8.1 - same thing.
