Why the inf file can be installed even all of the devices hardware ids dont' match? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The inf file only contains such hardware id:

    AdvSensorClassDriver_Install,HID\Vid_8087&Pid_0AC4

    AdvSensorClassDriver_Install,HID\Vid_8087&Pid_0AC5,

    and I got a list of the hid in system, no result of 0AC5 or AdvSensorClassDriver

    But the driver can be installed successfully.

    how could it be?

    Thanks

Answers

  • Probably what you mean is "staging". The driver is copied into the driver store but not actually installed by PnP, until a compatible device is detected.
