Using inf2cat with Windows 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1


  • I note that the updated inf2cat from the new 8.1 WDK has /os option values of 6_3_X86, 6_3_X64, and SERVER_6_3_X64.

    Are these the correct values to use for Windows 8.1 x86, 8.1 x64, and 2012 R2 x64, respectively?

    If so, what is the reason for using a name which looks nothing like the OS version name?

  • The names are the OS version number (win8.1 is v6.3). the tool has to be finished long before the OS marketing name (win8.1 in this case) is decided and the OS ver number has been set by the time the tool is complete
