How do some drivers get included with Windows? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a customer that we produce a printer driver for that is asking us about how can their printer driver be included on Windows install media so that they can install their bar code printers without having an Internet connection.

    We currently publish the driver to Windows Update, but the customer now wants to find the driver with no Internet connection. I don't imagine it would be easy or cheap, but I need to know a little about the program or process that is used by companies like HP and Epson to get printer drivers included on Windows install media.

  • why not have the customer get the signed driver packages from you after submission to the portal? having windows ship with the drivers in the media is a non starter. alternatively, if your customer is installing from media as there is no internet connection, they can deploy the drivers to the media before installing the OS
