zPNP.exe
The utility searches and automatically establishes the driver, found found in the specified places.
Similarly hwpnp.exe she searches for them and establishes, but in difference from it DriverPack can be in any place. There is no necessity to hold drivers in image of system (BootSdi, WimPack), it allows to reduce strongly the size of an image and to make its universal. For addition of drivers it is not required separate scripts.
Additional possibilities - import of drivers from the established system (similarly DriverImportPe).
Though the script does not demand hwpnp.exe, for high-grade job script XPE - pnp multimedia or HWPnP is desirable, the script only establishes drivers of devices though only it is enough for its network devices.

Script, the short description and examples.

Command-line argument for this feature not described in readmeeng.txt
Command line syntax suggestion: replace /2 /3 /4 with
/t:<number> Specifies the new value for the number of retries. The default number of retries is 1.

zPNP.exe comprises a database on drivers

Could you keep the database outside the main exe if we want to manually edit it to update to our needs.

Hi.
Import of drivers from the established system - does not demand special parametres, it is enough to specify a way to Windows for search of drivers.
Recommended:
zPNP.exe /i /e
/t:<number> - Ok.
Could you keep the database outside the main exe - Ok.
Regards,
Nikzzzz.

Hi nikzzzzz

here is what i am trying to do , i added Zpnp script to my live xp project . after making bootsdi.img , i edited the Zpnp.ini file in system32 folder like below

&#91;Config&#93;

Pass=2

Wim=*.wim

Log=%Temp%\zPnp_Log.txt

&#91;DevicesMask&#93;

Include=.

Exclude=

&#91;CDROM&#93;

Path=Drivers

&#91;REMOVABLE&#93;

Path=Drivers

&#91;FIXED&#93;

Drive=

Path=PeDrivers

&#91;Execute&#93;

2=MountStorPe.exe -ng

3=systray.exe

now i extracted drivers packs of sound , graphics and LAN , and packed them as WIM . and put them in drivers folder at root of flash drive .

now when system boots from usb, it automatically starts and installs my LAN driver ONLY .

what i need to ask is , why it is not installing my sound and graphics card ?
is there any problem in ini file or it requires some special settings. ?

thanks in advance .

For high-grade operation Audio and Video script XPE-pnp multimedia (AutoStart hwpnp should be disabled) is necessary, zPnp does not add support of devices, he only instal drivers.
Operation details in a file %Temp %\zPnp_Log.txt.

Hi, could you give a tutorial about how to use wim packs for zPNP?


Create catalog, for example d:\WimDrv
Copy driver files in this catalogue
Execute Idx2.exe d:\WimDrv
Execute imagex.exe /capture /compress maximum d:\WimDrw d:\Drivers.wim
Copy Drivers.wim in catalog Drivers target disk

Sorry to be a ding-dong but what do we do with the 2 parts? I am on Windows XP using 7zip.

What do we do with the second part of the RAR file? When I unpack it I get a "File is broken" error. The first one unpacks file.

maanu or nikzzzz,

I'm having trouble understanding how this works, I can get some drivers installed from unpacked sources only. I can not get zpnp to recognize wim's or dp's (.7z). I've tried all in one wim like described in tutorial and device specific like nikzzzz suggests (no luck). I think I'm setting the script up wrong but there's nothing in the tutorial to indicate other than default and having to specify the drive (or location of folder) in the script is not possible as drive letters change. So, what am I doing wrong? Is there something I'm supposed to add to AutoRun options or Execute?

hi Amalux ,

can you please verify that

you have following ini file in i386 folder

&#91;Config&#93;

Pass=2

Wim=*.wim

Log=%Temp%\zPnp_Log.txt

&#91;DevicesMask&#93;

Include=.

Exclude=acpi\\

&#91;CDROM&#93;

Path=Drivers

&#91;REMOVABLE&#93;

Path=Drivers

&#91;FIXED&#93;

Drive=

Path=PeDrivers

&#91;Execute&#93;

2=MountStorPe.exe -ng

3=systray.exe

2. you have Drivers folder at the root of usb drive with the wim files Nikzzzz posted last night ?
(is F: drive is your usb ? _

i have just checked it again with Nikzzzz archive this time ,. added the script UNTOUCHED , deleted my Drivers folder from root usb , added Nikzzzz's LAN archive only , build pe with wimboot based . and it installed the driver right after desktop appears >.

is there any error showed up or it just does not bother looking into wim files of Drivers folder ?

Nope, no ini in i386!

Yes, 'Drivers' folder containing *.wims from nikzzzz resides at root of UFD (why does it have to be a UFD?)

No error, icon appears briefly in tray then quits. If I manually browse to Drivers folder says 'No drivers found'. Same with DPs *.7z. If I put unpacked in Drivers folder zpnp finds at startup or manually no problem but only finds some, not all drivers i.e. audio-yes, lan-no etc.

VERY strange . it goes in to i386 folder automatically . not sure what is going wrong ,
can you plz copy the contents of above ini file , save it as zPNP.ini in i386 folder . and try again ?

and UFS is not necessary .

Wim support is?
If use unpacked the driver, you have executed Idx2.exe?

For fixed disks it is necessary
&#91;FIXED&#93;

Drive=*

Path=Drivers

Look log file (%temp%\zPnpLog.txt)

No problem, I should have looked (too tired last night). Anyway, it is there but I still have the issues discussed; I've tried a few more things (everything I can think of) with several different builds (all wimboot/2k3) but no luck. I'm having good success with dipe58 autosearch/install at boot and was hoping to test/compare with zpnp; looks like dipe wins :)

If you can think of any support scripts that zpnp might need, let me know; nikzzzz mentioned 'wim support', what is meant by that? As mentioned, all test builds are wimboot but do not have wimpack script enabled (don't like it), is this required? If so, should be mentioned in tutorial.
