How to publish a driver package using local publishing API RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb902470(v=vs.85).aspx

    i have been looking at the WSUS local publishing for publishing driver package.

    Most of the information available for non-drivers, any help for driver package.

    For quick testing, i have a driver package that is signed which will be installed during PnP, so i could build a metadata file, after that there is no details about how to publish the package.

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Hi,

    If we open a driver update, we should see at least one executable file in it.

    You may try to build the driver into an executable file. It's coding related and I'm afraid that I can't give you more suggestions.

    Here is a good article about how to publish an update:

  • Local Publishing API does not specify that the driver should be built as an executable file, so there is no .msp or .exe or .msi file. I have a directory with inf and other driver files. Most of the system interfaces are expecting .msp,.exe or.msi file, i don't have above said files. Local publishing API has some details about publishing a driver, but it is not enough.
