Can't install Near Field Proximity sample driver RRS feed

  • In all cases for an install failure the first place to turn is Setup API logging http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff550887(v=vs.85).aspx enable this and reboot and you should be able to see in the log what is failing.  If you can't figure out what to do at that point come back to the forum.

  • Thanks for the help. I've found the setupapi.dev.log file. My most recent attempt to install below:

    Steps so far:

    • built the Near Field Proximity Sample Driver project.
    • copied 'devcon.com' to the package output folder - x64\win8Release\Package
    • run the devcon.com command as given in the instructions
    • logfile above is the result

    The files that get created when I build are:

    netNfpProvider.dll

    NetNfpProvider.inf

    nfp.cat

    WdfCoinstaller01011.dll

    winusbcoinstaller.dll

    winusbcoinstaller2.dll

    WudfUpdate_01011.dll

    Thanks in advance!

  • configure VS and the WDK to deploy the driver as well. this will perform the necessary steps that install the driver

  • I'm trying to install on Windows 8 Enterprise on a Dell Inspiron 15z laptop, and would also like to install it on a Surface Pro to run the proximity demo.
