We have new computers with onboard graphic Intel Q45. We install Windows XP with Symantec Livestate Delivery. For convenience I added the graphic card driver to the Windows setup files, so the device will be installed on install of Windows.
I troubleshooted hours, because the driver is never installed. Finally I found out, that the driver files are containing files with more then 8.3 letters. But the files are copied during a DOS session with no long filename support. Intel seems to have forgotten, that long filenames are sometimes a big problem.
The following files are a problem:
Does anyone have a solution for that? Install the driver not in the Windows setup but later in the Windows environment is an option, but before I want to know if there's a workaround.
Solved. I renamed/shortened the files with too long names and changed in the INF file the names of the files.
- igcompkrng500.bin --> igcompkr.bin
- igkrng400.bin --> igkrng40.bin
- igkrng500.bin --> igkrng50.bin
Installation was successful, works for me. Quick and dirty
@Intel: please consider your naming convention, there are still some systems with no long filename support.
