It is a very didatic and complete guide - it seems that even a small kid can write up an .INF file after some reading.. :cheers:

I liked the quiz:

After reading this tutorial, you should be able to answer the following questions:

1. What section in an .INF file is used to install a hardware-specific function filter?
2. What is the Manufacturer section used for?
3. What types devices must have their PnP Ids listed in the [ControlFlags] ExcludeFromSelect directive? Why?
4. What is the Strings section used for?


A very good idea to ensure the lesson was taught properly! :cheers:

On the last part the author said:

"Say hello to Oscar Mayer for me!", I called back to him.


Just found who "Oscar Mayer" was..

Unfortunatelly also this article did not explain me an universal valid algorithm to convert 'HKR' to a registry key. :cheers:
