Best place for XP help? Can't install .inf files
« on: January 30, 2008, 03:39:07 PM »
I found something about this, only in reference to older versions of windows, and it doesn't seem to be transferrable.

For some reason (too many little utilities?) I cannot install .inf files.  "Install" is not available in the context menu, but all the registry keys seem to be right.

What's your favorite place to look for information like this?  Googling has turned up nothing so far...

Thanks, that worked!  I must not have been using the right search terms.
