Hello,

 

i'm trying to create a package that would pré-install the drivers for a TTP-245C device.

It looks like it is not possible to install the driver for this device without it beeing connected to the PC(USB) before the installation runs.

 

I'm using this command: 

 

DriverWizard.exe install /name:"BarTender" /model:"TSC TTP-245C" /port:"USB"

 

After i enter the command the pc must reboot to continue the installation.

After the reboot i get an installation failed message, at this point i have to connect the device to the pc to continue the installation.

 

Can we install the driver without the device beeing connected to the pc and powered on?

 

k.regards

John

Hi John,

 

Unfortunately this is going to be an issue. Based off of how Windows works with USB ports, until you plug something in, technically that port isn't "created" yet so it's not a port you can select within our driver wizard. Technically you can create the port through Windows, once it's created it will be an option in the Driver Wizard and also it will be available through the Command line. However, this does not fix the issue of how Windows allocates a port when a USB device is plugged in. Because of how the virtual ports work, what you would hope to be port USB001 when you plug the device in could actually end up being USB003, this is not something you can control from within our driver wizard.

 

I was able to run a simulation on my machine with this same scenario. I received the same error that you received, however I circumvented it by creating the port before hand utilizing the Windows printer installer.Instead of using "USB" for the port, I used "USB001", because that is the naming convention that Windows will use.

 

My advice would be to research how to create the port via Command line, once the port is created you would be able to utilize it through our wizard. Our driver wizard does technically have a button to "Create" a new port, but it is not accessible through the Command line.

 

I hope this helps! Feel free to ask more questions if you have any.

Hello,

 

Just passing by to say i solved this by pre-installing the driver via dpinst.exe.
