wixfigura Posted December 11, 2007 Share Posted December 11, 2007 (edited) DRIVERFORGEMaybe you know the problem: you have a PC with a missing driver and you dont like to search the net for the right one. So - thats the solution.Driverforge searches automatically the driver you need and installs it. Driverforge is a frontend for SPDrvScn + Driverpacks and brings this 2 things together.RUNNING THE PROGRAMFirst download the drivers from Driverpacks.net. If You have driverpacks already integrated into your Windows CD, you can put Driverforge everywhere you like on your CD, it will recognize the OEM (driver) folder automatically.When the program starts, it automatically finds what compressed Driverpacks you have in your Driverpacks folder and auto selects them all. You can put more Driverpacks in the DriverPacks folder and hit the "All" button to refresh, as it were, to get the updated list.You can click the "None" button to deselect all DriverPacks. And then select only the ones you want.Clicking the "Change" button on the "Compressed Driver Location" will bring up a message box asking you if your using compressed drivers. Clicking no will change the 7zLoc or Compressed Location to UnCompressed.Clicking the "Change" button on the "Drivers Extraction Location" or "UnCompressed Drivers Location" will change where the compressed files will be extracted to or where the already uncompressed DriverPacks are located.If you put driverforge on a removable drive, name the directory with the compressed drivers inside "OEM".Once the drivers are done installing you can choose to delete the uncompressed DriverPacks location.If you want to integrate your own drivers (3rd-party), the 7zip file has to begin with "DP3...". Maybe "DP3rd.7z" or "DP_3" like "DP_3rd.7z". >Here< is the tutorial, how to integrate your own drivers.THE INI FILEThe INI file is named driverforge.ini which will get automatically created if one is not manually created.[Driver]DriverExtract=7zLoc=DriverExtract - The location of the uncompressed drivers location or the location that the Driverpacks will be extracted to. If you leave it blank it will default to C:\Drivers. Make sure to put the full path.DriverExtract variables X:\Drivers (or any other fully usable folder path location), Blank7zLoc - The location of the compressed DriverPacks. If you set this to UnCompressed it will tell the program that you are using UnCompressed Drivers. If you leave it blank it will default to UnCompressed. If there is a folder called OEM in the same folder that the DriverForge is being run from it will select that location ONLY if you have not specified a directory or if you've set OEM in the driverforge.ini.7zLoc variables UNCOMPRESSED, OEM, X:\DriverPack7z (or any other fully usable folder path location), BlankPICS DOWNLOADUpdated on Dec.28.2007 to Version 1.0 :xxxxTHE PROJECT IS STILL OPEN: NOW HERE MODERATED BY KICKARSE !!!!>>>Driverforge uses SPDrvScn from Vernalex and Driverpacks from Driverpacks.net.
