Drivers Pack Unpacker & Installer by Warm Snow

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

156188faf72558b6e9.jpg

I wrote some small program - Drivers Pack Unpacker & Installer.

It can unpack & install DriverPacks - they can be downloaded from this site.

It means that - you download the driver pack & put it to the dp folder in application directory.

From that point program will take care about unzipping & installing needed drivers.

The Program is fully portable. You can use it from CD,DVD,Flash cards , external drives etc. Starting 2 version utility can unpack&install only needed drivers (by HWID).

Mini FAQ:

1. - Where does the "DP" folder go: c:\ or c:\windows. Do all your files have to be copied to c: drive etc.?

- "DP" folder is in application directory

2. - Are we to assume this is to be used after a system was installed without DriverPacks slipstreamed?

- you can use it on any x86_32 (64 not yet tested) system.

3. - If so, does your program automatically install drivers for "unknown devices" in device manager?

- Yes. The main principle is "Black Box" system - you don`t know which driver to install (update) & press the button to unpack & install :)

After it finished - you can see what was done in the programs log-section.

4. - The Main driverpacks cab compressed take up 500MB instead of the 1.5GB they consume when extracted, does your program also cab them?

- Right now tested packs consist of 25 driver packs - 533 mb in 7zip . (~3 gb - decompressed size) No, it does not cab them.

5. - and that the packs must be in 'Your' programs subfolder?

- Only Driver Packs from http://www.driverpacks.net/ are tested. Full tested packs list is above.

6. - it would seem that your program simply extracts the driverpacks and launches the MS program. 700K seems huge for that?

- Yes it`s make that simple work. But my target was to have one GUI interface for all unpackers & installers + detailed log. And Also i need to have choice - which driver to install. One more thing is to save space. Anyway. You can use any other driver installation method. You are free in choice :)

Usefull links

2 - The DevCon command-line utility functions as an alternative to Device Manager

3 - language codes

Hello My Friend ...

WoW it worked like a charm here :) I´ve just used it on a new laptop build i made .. with only Windows XP SP3 integrated by hand.

Well, it´s very usefull tool to use with DriversPack. it saves a lot of work, when i don´t have a proper driverspack cd on hand. Just extract a folder and shazam ... it find all the drivers for my hardware.

I hope you will continue to improve your program ... if you had time, please make translation of the gui possible, i want to make it portuguese brasil :).

Do you mind, if i creat a Brazilian How To based on your work, and mirror your program over brazilian forums !?

Thanks and have a nice day
