FAQ: Q1. How to change the version for this setup program ? A1. This setup program will display the version number according to the file time of the setup.exe. Assume the file time is hh:mm:ss, 1. General version format is : "Version hh.mm". In general case, ss is useless. 2. If hh > 12, it will display as "BETA ss". Where ss is as same as the file time. Q2. What is the purpose of files VIADELXX.INF ? A2. Those files are used for uninstall driver. When user uninstall the driver, this setup program will copy the associated VIADELXX.INF into WINDIR\INF and modify the hardware id in VIADELXX.INF to complete match the current machine. After click the "Finish" button, setup program will trigger a ReEnumerate and install a "no driver" driver for audio controller. Q3. How about silent install ? A3. You can perform "Silent Install" in the DOS box by specific parameter "-s". There are other parameters can be used for "Silent Install". "-wdm" : Allow you to install WDM driver under Windows 98. "-vxd" : Allow you to install VXD driver under Windows 98SE. "-b" : This parameter will causes OS reboot after setup. "-u -s": Perform a "Silent Uninstall". "-s" : Perform a "Silent Install". Q4. Why the Device Manager will ask me to search the driver when I install the WDM driver on Windows 98 ? A4. It is caused by the SUBSYS in INF file does not completely match with your machine. Q5.
