Scan for Hardware Changes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    Can anyone give a quick description of how to kick off a "Scan for Hardware Changes" operation like the one that is available in Device Manager?

    I have an IDE CD-ROM attached to my SBC that can be powered off and on by a temperature sensor/controller when the unit gets out of temperature specs. It's possible that the unit can boot up with the CD-ROM powered off and then be powered on at a later time when it reaches ambient temperature.  When it is powered back on by the temperature controller, Windows XPe isn't recognizing that it has come back to life. But if I do a "Scan for Hardware Changes" in Device Manger then it comes back and my program receives a DeviceChange / DEVICEARRIVAL event.

    Anyone know how to initiate this operation in Visual C++??  I'm really trying to not have to reboot the unit.

    Thanks in advance!
