Solved update driver using command line utility

Specs: Windows XP
Hello All,

I need to update a driver in a Device Manager in Windows NT via command line ie batch file. There is a command line utility tool called Devcon that works on Windows XP and higher but not on NT.

Does anyone knows anything that will facilitate in updating a driver in Windows NT using command line or any programming?

Thank you

A brief internet search did not bring up any alternatives.

I'm guessing DevCon doesn't work under NT because it is not a plug-and-play operating system, which may pre-empt NT from controlling devices from the command prompt. Thus it may be a technical limitation and not a conscious one made by Microsoft.

I also guessing it doesn't work under Windows 95/98/ME because those systems are so old Microsoft may have decided not to support them.

Not a command-line utility as such; you are going to have to do a little work to make a script file that performs the necessary installation steps. Have a look at the section "Installation" in this link:
