Hardware Assistent bzw. Loopbackadapter installieren unter Windows 7 Beta


Wer sich bisher auch schon gefragt hat, wo man den Loopbackdapater unter Windows 7 Beta installieren kann…ja, scheinbar wurde vergessen, den Hardware Assistenten einzubinden. 🙂

Aber kein Problem, einfach in Windows auf den Start-Button klicken und nach “hdwwiz” suchen. hdwwiz.exe ausführen und schon öffnet sich der gewohnte Assistent, um die gewünschte Hardware hinzuzufügen.

Viel Erfolg! 🙂

    Steven Synofski hat dich gehört und in RC 1 ist diese Funktion wieder drin:

    Device Installation

    21. Add Legacy Hardware functionality restored

    The Add Legacy Hardware action was provided in Device Manager on past Windows releases to install non-Plug and Play devices. We removed this functionality for Windows 7 with the belief that this was rarely used. Aaron blogged, “You might have noticed that the old ‘Add Legacy Hardware’ option seems to be missing. I tend to use this quite a bit whenever I need to add in a Loopback adapter or some piece of hardware that is not quite installing correctly.” As a result, this functionality has been restored to Device Manager for RC to help add non-Plug and Play devices.

    The beta listed my SB Live! Value as unknown device. that was ok, i installed the driver myself.

    But the RC does not list it at all. No unknown device. Why that and how to fix it?

    Thanks
