Default "Load Driver" from a Script: How ?

Hello,

Is there a way to "Load Driver" from a Script / Batch File / Command Line /
WMI / API ?
If yes: how ?

Per example: Load a Driver for Intel SATA RAID.
With diskpart.exe i saw that i can RESCAN the disks, also using a script,
but What about Load a Driver ?

Thanks

Default "Load Driver" from a Script: How ?

Hi,

Since you're not getting any responses, I decided to provide my view on this
question. That is, I've never had the need to install a driver using a
script, though I'm sure I've not experienced every need in existence. Every
driver I've installed came with its own installer or used the Windows
installer. I have Intel SATA RAID drivers installed on my computer, and I
had no need for a script, apart from that which may have been automatically
used by the installer that got the job done. I have no idea what those
installers have for code. That's my view. Anyone else?

Typically no, if that "script" is not provided by the OEM that authors the
driver. The hardware wizard should detect new hardware and attempt to
install first logo'd and certified drivers, and then in desparation, ask for
a driver. However, for a disk drive such as SATA, typically the existing
storage or USB stack(s) are sufficient for those.
