    Hello all,

    I am trying to develop an automated batch file for configuring fresh installs on multiple different systems. I have it all set, but the one issue of how, if it is even possible, how can I get it to automatically update the drivers? I've seen DevCon, but it seems that Vista doesn't play very well with it.

    Suggestions? Ideas?

    Thanks for your time and thoughts!

    btw, just to put up a background of this issue,

    I have spent several days on this program (I have had to relearn my coding, and have learned quite a bit of NEW in the process!). The intent of the program/utility is to automate the Army's process of imaging computers. While a lot of it is already automated, there are several "after" steps that must be done. By automating these steps, it is helping to expedite the process, especially when migrating from one OS to another. Also increasing the productivity and efficiency of the support offices as well.

    On this particular segment of this utility, I have tried researching the Windows TechNet forums, the Windows knowledge base articles, Google searching, several other forumns, referenced Command Line commands (DevCon looked promising, but alas, Win Vista didn't like that very much). I am continuing my attempts in finding a solution, but your aid in this is much appreciated.

    Thanks again and have a good one! :)
