directly install a driver?

The driver won't install for my new wireless PC card network adapter.  I suspect something in the .inf file is wrong.  Can a driver be installed directly in Windows 2000 without going through the Windows wizards?

RE: directly install a driver?

I tried that method many times with a disk controller card, CorBlimeyLimey and this:


is how I eventually fixed it.

By using an install routine from the chip manufacturer.

I was ever so impressed with the CD provided by the card manufacturer. Not.

Maybe the OP will have to try something like this.

Using the Windoze driver install method got absolutely nowhere, with Windoze saying "I can't find a driver" with monotonous regularity...

Hope this helps a little.
