[Release] DriverGrabber v1.0 RC4


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

[Release] DriverGrabber v1.0 RC4

Postby Siginet » Tue Jul 25, 2006 1:18 am

This small exe will grab all 3rd party drivers from your system and stick them into a "Drivers" directory in the same directory as the exe.

Very simple to use... ;) Not even a newbie can screw this up... (I hope). ;)

Just download the exe... and double click it! :eek:

Sit back until the icon in the bottom right goes away. Yep you're done now. :D

Now post back here and let me know if it worked out for you.

You can download DriverGrabber Here:
Download DriverGrabber 1.0 RC3


Change Log:
1.0 RC4
Fixed - Some Drivers Where Being Backed Up Multiple Times

1.0 RC3 05/28/2012
Implemented x64bit compatability.
Improved the way DriverGrabber grabs the main inf and cat files for each driver.

0.5 Beta
1. Now it builds a log file. In the log it shows all drivers that are skipped and what the provider is. It shows all drivers that were grabbed and the provider. It lists all files that were copied for each driver. It will log any directory creation errors.
2. There is now a DriverGrabber.ini file that you can specify a string to look for in each Provider you wish to skip and you can specify a String to skip if it is found in the drivers name. By default the drivergrabber.ini will have the info in it to have all microsoft drivers skipped:
Code: Select all
[Provider]
Microsoft=Skip

[Name]
Microsoft Corporation=Skip

3. DriverGrabber will now detect if the system is x86 or x64 and use the correct devcon.exe needed for the system. So it should work fine with x64.

0.4 Beta:
1. Fixed some path bugs. Some drivers where not backed up because drivergrabber could not create a directory for the driver if they had certain symbols in their name. Thanks for your help pandera13!
2. I also put an error check when the new directory is made according to the drivers name. Now if the directory can not be created then a msgbox will pop up stating the directory name that it failed to create. If you get this error message please post it here so I can add a check for the symbol that is messing up the directory creation.
3. The Splash window now apears at the top of your desktop and not in the center. It also can now be moved around and placed wherever you want.
4. The splash window would flash like crazy whenever it went to the next step... so I fixed this so that it doesn't flash and it is much nicer to look at.

0.3 Beta:
1. Fixed grabbing of cat files. It should now correctly grab the cat files (as long as they exist... remember some drivers may not have had the cat files installed. If your cat file is not grabbed please search your harddrive for it or if your drivers inf file is named oem7.inf or simular search for oem7.cat etc...)
2. DriverGrabber should scan for drivers better now. So those of you who had missing drivers... please try the new version and post back here.
3. Splash window now shows progress.
4. Added Siginet copyright info.

0.2 Beta:
1. Should now grab needed cat files.
2. Better checking for Microsoft drivers so that it skips backing them up.

3 tests. 3 successes in an average of 17 seconds of operation.

First Test: Operation XPSP2 with RVM 2.1.0 and drivers on cd (MSFN method), returned exactly what was installed plus the Alchohol virtual drive.

Second Test: Virgin SP2 install with virgin Vendor drivers. Same results.

Third Test: RVM'd source without drivers on cd, virgin vendor drivers. Again, same results.

Siginet can you maybe enable the backing up of .cat files

This is what B?shrat said about them:

OK... I'll have to look into where the cats are saved and how to tell which cat goes to which driver.

Nice work so far.

Though it did not grab any of the CAT files and it skipped a device that it shouldn't have:
Intel(R) PRO Wireless 2200BG Network Connection

I also don't recall that these are part of the windows installation, but they were not found either.
Mobile Intel(R) 915GM PM Express PCI Express Root Port - 2591
Mobile Intel(R) 915GM PM GMS 910GML Express Processor to DRAM Controller - 2590

It also grabbed a couple extra file with the ALPS Touchpad and Conextant modem drivers, but every app of this type seems to grab an extra file here and there so it's not a big deal.

Not sure why it skipped the Intel drivers but let me know if I can help.


And this may help you figure out why it didn't get the wireless driver, it also did not get the VMware net drivers, cisco vpn adapter driver, and deterministic network enhancer miniprot driver. none of which I care about but they all fall under the network adapter category.

Thanks for the work. Keep it up

Thanks for the info. Could you please post the inf files for me? on the ones that did not get grabbed properly. I need to see those infs to understand why they weren't grabbed.

I'll post the inf's later tomorrow. Not at that machine anymore. And I can test it on a few more machines and let you know the results.
