Unattended Update Release Notes for Windows* 2000
=================================================

Windows 2000 Unattended Update Files:
W2KUPDATE.EXE   - Update executable
W2KUPDATE.TXT   - This text file

This update package performs unattended software updates
under Windows 2000 for the NIC software.

W2KUPDATE.EXE can be invoked via command line options.
It upgrades the drivers silently by copying the files and updating
the registry.

W2KUPDATE.EXE, the PnP INF file (NETxxxx.INF) and the associated
software must be placed in the same directory.

W2KUPDATE.EXE is invoked as follows:

      W2KUPDATE [-iInfFileName] [-h"HardwareId"] [-u]

where:

      InfFileName   = a fully qualified path to the PnP INF
                      This parameter is optional.  If it is not
                      specified, the current directory is searched
                      for the first NET*.INF to use.

      HardwareId    = is a fully qualified PCI hardware Id for the
                      device to update.
                      E.g. PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1229&SUBSYS_00098086
                      This parameter is optional.  If it is not
                      specified, all 8086 network devices in the
                      PnP INF file are updated.

      -u            = specifies that the driver should be unloaded 
		      and then reloaded.  This saves having to either
		      reboot the system or manually disable and then
		      reenable the device to start using the updated
		      driver.
                      This parameter is optional.  The default behavior
		      is to not reload the driver.

Examples:

    To update all 8086 network devices in the PnP INF of the current directory

        W2KUPDATE


    To update all 8086/1229/8086/1009 devices in the PnP INF of
    the current directory

        W2KUPDATE -h"PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1229&SUBSYS_10098086"

    To update all 8086/1229/8086/1009 devices in the NET.INF of
    the Update directory on drive D:

        W2KUPDATE -iD:\Update\NET.INF -h"PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1229&SUBSYS_10098086"


Update results are written to a log file.

All updates will take effect when the computer is restarted.
