Missing "Add Legacy Hardware" option inside Device Manager with Windows 7 - a workaround

    Obecná diskuse

  • You might have noticed that the old 'Add Legacy Hardware' option seems to be missing. I tend to use this quite a bit whenever I need to add in a Loopback adapter or some piece of hardware that is not quite installing correctly.

    With that said, thankfully, you can still manually launch the 'Add Legacy Hardware' Control Panel applet by using hdwwiz.exe.

    I know this article was written just after the release of Windows7.

    At this moment, there is "Add Legacy Hardware" option available without installing an applet.

    You can go from Start Menu > Right click on Computer > Administrative (G) > Device Manager.

    Plug your device then "Add Legacy Hardware" option will be available on the Actions menu.
