Prompt for installation after deployment? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So after I deploy xp or 7 i get a prompt upon restart before it finished the install for an analog device. i am assuming it comes from a driver, but do not know how to get rid of it. Any ideas? The prompt is for smax4pnp.exe

  • I have fixed my problem. The issue was with drivers that had .exe in them. I found some articles online relating to stream.exe. I ran that against my drivers to "unblock" them and now the prompts do not appear after deployment. Thanks guys.

  • Can you perform some more digging? Where is this process coming from?

    You can use the Task Manager to get the commandline of the process. You can also use Process Explorer to see which program launched the smax4pnp.exe device.

  • This is for the SoundMax audio device. As you're getting this prompt for both XP and Windows 7 then I'd say you've imported a goofy driver. You can find and remove it from the drivers node in the deployment share.

  • So you removed the "downloaded from the internet" flag. You should also check that this driver has come from a valid source. Just in case.
