Question : How to use DriverGeek to restore drivers


I'm trying DriverGeek v0.6.0.1 ( because I need to restore drivers getting them from an old installation of Windows (c\Windows.old\Windows) and installing them to a new one (c:\Windows).
The old OS is Windows Vista Ultimate and the new one is the same. DriverGeek seems to detect the drivers,but it is unable to install them on the new OS. Maybe the problem is the version of DPinst I'm using (2.1.0). I tell this because the reinstallation process doesn't start at all. Thanks in advance for your help.

This is the dgconfig.ini file I'm using :


; Run without prompts and progress even if prompts help, this has not
been fully implemented, only for tooltips
; Blank defaults to 0 = No, 1 = Yes

; Reboot after install completes
; Blank defaults to 0 = No, 1 = Yes

; Show Windows Device Manager during installation, it will close when
driver installs have finished
; Blank defaults to 0 = No. 1 = yes

; DpInst.exe is used in installing the drivers to the system. If
DPInst.exe cannot be found or supplied the
; program will ask if you would like to default to Windows
2000/XP/2003 x86 default driver installation method
; using Rundll32.exe
; The temporary folder for running DPinst.exe from is deleted when the
program exits
; Blank defaults to C:\Users\marietto\AppData\Local\Temp\drivergeek\bin

; Accept Software EULA, you must accept the EULA to run the program
; Blank defaults to 0 = No, 1 = Yes


; Search Paths, multiple paths, or even INF file(s), separated via Pipe symbol
; Environment variables work with this option.

; The software will automatically append the current programs
directory your driver search path
; Blank defaults to 1 = Yes, 0 = No

; Search drives found, options are:
; ----> ALL, CDROM, Removable, Ramdisk, Fixed, Network (and Unknown,
but shouldn't need to be used)
; The option 'All' will take the place of needing to enter the rest of
the options and will add all drives found
; You can add one or multiple, separating them with a Pipe symbol
; Blank will not search any 'drives' for drivers

; Has not been implemented but will allow extraction of compressed
drives from the path supplied
; and then extracted and installed from. This feature has not been
implemented yet. The extracted drivers
; path will be appended to the DriverSearcPaths option.
; If a compressed drivers path is specified and a extract path is not
the program will default
; to extract to
C:\Users\marietto\AppData\Local\Temp\drivergeek\drivers and will be
deleted after drive installation has completed
; If the program cannot extract to any directory extraction will be
terminated, if no other driver
; path is specified the program will exit

Answer : How to use DriverGeek to restore drivers

You can link the data by an id# assigned for the first table to each person.

If you don't, and you use XML, etc., you will make it much much harder on yourself later, as data needs to be added, changed, etc..
