I have found the best way to do this is to carry out a separate driver installation from the command line. When installing with an msi you might sometimes get a PnPDriverImportError.

First secure the inf and other files from the directories in C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository after doing a manual install. Subsequently you can put the inf and necesssary files into a single [INSTALLDIR] for installation (different drivers can be put into one dir als long as there are no identical file names).

Use dpinst32.exe or dpinst64.exe on resp. 32-bits and 64-bits OS with the following syntax: 

.\dpinstXX.exe"  /SW  /path "[INSTALLDIR]"
