Windows 8.1 > Device Manager > Software Devices (group) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. A simple question: On a Windows 8.1 system, what is the purpose of the Device Manager group named "Software devices"?

    On one particular system, this group includes the following entries:

    • "Microsoft Device Association Root Enumerator"
    • "Microsoft IPv4 IPv6 Transition Adapter Bus

    As well as two entries for the computer itself, listed by hostname, which are grayed out / listed as hidden devices / not-installed.

    Thank you.
