  • holy cow Bill. You are 100% unhelpful. He asking for help on a script,  not help on your form rules.

  • Did you ever figure out how to do this? I need the same thing.

  • Sorry you found this unhelpful.

    Ultimately this is about fairness: If you want others to put forth effort into answering your question, you need to put forth some effort in asking a decent question.

    This is a scripting forum where we answer scripting questions. It isn't a script-on-demand forum.

    That said: If you want help, please start a new question and demonstrate effort in your question (here's what I searched for, here's what didn't work, here is my script, here are the errors I'm getting, etc.).

  • This is a really old thread I know, but I too need an answer for the original question. I have searched a LOT for this particular question.

    In fact, for uninstalling and installing drivers on any network device there doesn't seem to be a way to do it using powershell. All I could find is Remove-PrinterDriver on MSDN, which is obviously just for printer drivers.

    Get-NetAdapter commandlets lets you change/configure the network interface but does not give any option to completely uninstall/install a new/old driver.

    pnputil works but all it does is remove the oem[x].inf driver package rather than actually installing/uninstalling the binded driver on the network adapter.

    Maybe I'm missing something, could you or someone else help?

    Thanks!

    You are asking deployment and configuration questions in a scripting forum.  You will not find an answer.  Windows installs drivers automatically for most hardware when it is connected.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
