I added it on our TODO list and it will be available in a future version. Thank you for your suggestion.

Hello cosmin,

How about adding different versions of the Microsoft redistributable packages (.MSU) for the Windows Driver Frameworks versions 1.05 to 1.11 to the list of predefined prerequisites? Windows driver packages heavily rely on these libraries and with Windows 8 release they will become increasingly more popular.

Thanks.

Hi Kambizt,

Are they available online? If not, how can we get them?

Hi Cosmin,

They are available online as free packages for everybody to download. If you don't find some of the old ones because Microsoft might no longer maintain the webpages for those packages, you can then either download them through MSDN subscriber download page, if you have access to any, or contact Microsoft and ask them about it.

Regards,

Kambizt

Hi cosmin,

Once you get the package installed, in that directory you will find a bunch of MSU file for versions 1.9 and 1.11 of the WDF ehich is exactly what you need to install on target PCs. For the earlier versions, you may notice some DLL files rather than MSU. To extract the MSU files from those DLLs, please follow the instructions listed as "Extract the KMDF/UMDF driver from the DDK" at the link below:

Thanks.

SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP2 would be nice.

Also, separate 32/64-bit installers for the SQL Server Native Clients are necessary. The current prerequisite package is 32-bit only.

We will consider adding separate prerequisites in a future version. Thank you for your suggestion. Until then, you can copy the prerequisite and change the setup file or URL to the 64-bit version.

I added it on our TODO list and it should be included in version 9.8. Thank you for your suggestion.

Is it possible to add our own predefined prerequisites.

I know you are taking a list of prereqs that are commonly used but what about non common products that one or two people use, or even previous version of our own products.
