Advanced Installer uses Windows Driver Install Frameworks (DIFx), version 2.1, to install the drivers. The necessary libraries for DIFx come with the Microsoft Windows Driver Kit.

This framework is designed for installing Software First Install drivers only.
These drivers usually come with your application, e.g. an anti-virus filter for the network adapter. It is not recommended to use it for installing Hardware First Install type drivers, e.g. a driver for your sound card.
