Driver Detection - Tell User That It Is Safe To Close Program Once Driver Is Install

Jun 1, 2011

Trying to figure out if there is anyway built into windows 7/Vista/XP and/or Dpinst to verify that a driver is installed? I created a program that uses DPinst to install a driver and now I need to figure out how to tell the user that it is safe to close the program once the driver is install as the driver takes longer on some machines to install. Would anyone know how to get this to work?

Removing HID Driver With Devcon?

Jul 27, 2011

Iīm using Windows 7, 64 Bit and Visual Basic form VS 2010 to develop an application.

I want to remove a HID driver with the Devcon.exe tool. Using the console (cmd.exe) with the following command, there is no problem. The driver ist removed immediatly.

D:devcon remove =keyboard "HIDVID_1784*"

If I try the same from the application with:

Shell("C:WindowsSystem32cmd.exe /k D:devcon remove =keyboard ""HIDVID_1784*""", AppWinStyle.NormalFocus, True, 1000)


process.StartInfo = New ProcessStartInfo("C:WindowsSystem32cmd.exe", " /k D:devcon remove =keyboard ""HIDVID_1784*""")

then devcon returns the message:

"The 1 device(s) are ready to be removed. To remove the devices, reboot the system."

and the device is not removed or disabled, and of course, I donīt want to reboot the system. 

Does anyone have the same problem or even better can tell me, how to solve this problem, so that the driver ist immediatly removed?

It's been a while since i've posted. Happy Valentine's day! Requirement: I would like to interface my .NET application to a "virtual webcam driver" for the purposes of SENDING image frames.

My second priority is low dependancy on 3rd party libraries and tech (aside from .NET of course I'd prefer not to involve directshow if possible?

Cannot Set Capabilities Of Scanner Through Twain Driver

Sep 9, 2011

I have been working with TWAIN driver for few days. I have learnt how to connect to the scanner or get the working scanners connected to the machine. I am having a problem now, eventhough i get connected to the scanner, I am not able to set the capabilities from my application. The scanner scans using the capabilities that are set on it but not from my application. I have looked at the sample code given with twain pro but even that doesnt set the capabilities of the scanner. For example if the scanner is set to 300 dpi and I set 200dpi from my application, the scanner scans with 300 dpi. It gives me an error saying that the value given is out of range.

Is my coding in error or is Windows reporting the screen information wrongly ? How can I be sure to set AllScreen(0) as the users primary screen and AllScreens(1) as their secondary ?
