[Release] DriverGrabber v1.0 RC4

Here are some other small tools that have been created by Siginet that are in someway helpful.

Yay! I'm useful! :P

As far as my check each file suggestion...let me clarify with an example:

1) DG compares files A1, B1...Z1 with A2, B2...Z2
2) If A-Z #1 match A-Z #2, user is asked "Files exist and are a match, overwrite anyway?" Yes/No + Always use this answer
--If yes, DG deletes ALL existing files, thus removing any "orphan" files, then copies the new ones
3) If A-Y #1 match A-Y #2, but Z1 != Z2, or if A-Z #1 != A-Z #2, then user is prompted with "Files exist, but do not match. What do you want to do?" Overwrite/Keep/Save to new folder + always use this answer
--If overwrite, DG acts the same as yes in step 2

*Also, another thought...if I've got a driver backup CD, and I want to do a manual install...I don't want to have the subcategories...just device names. I'm not going to have a hard drive called "ATI Radeon All-In-Wonder x1900" :P

Ideally, it'd be:
\Drivers\Mynetwork\Biohazard\leethardwarezorz!!!11one1! for my house and
\Drivers\GodIHateWorkingHere\butitsgoodmoney\lamehardwareatleetprices for work :)

--> forgive my "humor", i'm bored :)

DriverGrabber v0.5 works great...

Thank you very much for this tiny cool tool. I've been searching a long time for a tool that enables me to save my drivers for an installed machine in only one step. You did it, thank you.

One thing i see is that chipset drivers (on my machine with nforce2 it is the nvnetbus) not included. This may leads to a problem on a new installation because you'll need the chipset drivers to be installed first.

Probably no third party drivers are installed. All of the drivers on the system must be microsoft drivers... or your drivers are not installed properly?

Starting from CD

Postby Kim » Tue Feb 26, 2008 12:58 pm

I successfully started from CD by using a small batch file to copy the files to Desktop. Here's a couple of simple commands:

echo. The next line copies, and creates, the -drivers- folder on Desktop
xcopy "%cdrom%\MyDriver\Portable" "%userprofile%\Desktop\-DRIVERS-" /h /I /k /q /y >NUL
echo. The next line runs the program
CALL "%userprofile%\Desktop\-Drivers-\DriverGrabber.exe"
echo. the next line removes all files except the found drivers
DEL "%userprofile%\Desktop\-Drivers-\*.*" /Q /f

Actually there are a lot more commads in the batch file, like wait, and title, and these type of echos ÜÛß that put borders around echoed name

Just wondering if anyone successfully worked out an easier way to run it from CD
Actually ideally I wish the program could just do it itself, but it doesn't.

I'm very happy with it, it beats all the others (that require installs)
So thanks for an excellent tiny program
Any updates, is the programmer still alive?


Actually Siginet is ofcourse, I suppose my question is really, any updates forthcoming ?
And is my little batch file ok, or not?
