This is a small tool that I wrote out of need. I do believe that this tool may be of use to others, but it's still in beta phase, and I need feedback from users, Please :-)
I have a printer that did not come with an INF-based printer driver,but instead with a setup.exe-based driver / or integrated with Windows. I don't run iPrint, but only Point-And-Print, or NDPS. How do I distribute this driver?
Install this program on your PC, and run PDrvGen.exe, select the printer, and select "Generate".An INF-based driver will now be generated!
What's new in version 220.127.116.11:
- Gray Cash from the USA had a small, but nice request, that I preserved the version info in the driver, if it was present in the origen driver.
That way, troubleshooting would be a lot easier to do.
PDrvGen will now extract and save the Driver Version info"
What's new in version 18.104.22.168:
- Theo Pluym found an HP Driver that wasn't written that well, since it didn't liked a space between the parameters. Since I figured, that other drivers might suffer from the same problem, I corrected PDrvGen to generate inf-files without this.
