I have driver sources as:




when I install above driver files using DEVCON COMMAND as:

DEVCON install Sxuptp.inf "root\sxuptp"

Above command create Device node under DeviceManager-->SystemDevices-->SXUPTP Drivers.

Updates drivers for root\sxuptp from Sxuptp.inf.

This device is working properly.

I have created MSI package using DIFxApp for same drivers

After installation it copy the sxuptp.inf,sxuptp.cat and sxuptp.sys files to


But it's not actually installs driver to system by saying no device founds or no device is connected to system in log file.

Also It's not creates any device node under DeviceManager


why this happening ??? Any help is appreciated...

Does the install log show that the MSI installed successfully (although the fact that the files are there suggest it did)?

Install the MSI without the device connected then connect the device. Does the New Hardware wizard says it's been successful?

MSI Log file says Installed Successfully,

Driver installed to %systemroot%\system32\DRVSTORE directory
SXUPTP.inf file copied to %systemroot%\inf directory as oem21.inf\
means drivers are staged/pre-installed.

But issue is
1. By using DEVCON COMMAND, it install drivers to system and also create the new Device node as SXUPTP under DeviceManager-->SystemDevices

2. But why DPInst/DIFxApp pre-install the drivers to %systemroot%\system32\DRVSTORE only. why it is not creating any Device node under DeviceManager-->SystemDevices snap-in.

I'm not getting this different type of behaviors for same driver software source.

What happens when you plug the device in? The installation should complete.
