Driver package appears to be tampered for the solution. And one other important and positive information; the installer install.exe can be called with the parameters /q /h to enable an unattended installation. I cannot guarantee that all vendor installers can handle unattended installation, but I think that most can. In some cases it is better to use the vendor’s installer instead of any of the previous methods, for example when installing a more complicated driver. The complete path and file name of the INF file of the driver.
My preferred method to solve this unsigned driver issue is to simply sign the catalog file myself. The hash value of one of the source files has changed, invalidating the catalog file . See the section INF hash is not present in the catalog.
We offer 100% feature and design parity between the Xerox Global Print Driver and traditional Xerox drivers for most Xerox products. Name the printer and choose whether or not to share it with other users. I’m new to consulting and recently deployed a printer using Intune & Powershell . I had been looking for some documentation to better understand the INF and how they worked. I found this after the fact but, it gave me the answers I was looking for.
PCL6 Driver – PCL6 is a good general purpose text / graphics driver. Ideal for Spreadsheets, Word Processing and Database printouts. It features superior graphics handling, although graphically better than the PCL5e driver it’s speed is typically slower. You will not lose capabilities by moving from a traditional driver to the global driver.
- No, just kidding, I had my colleague count them for me. 🙂 OK, OK, I will get serious now.
- You simply open the INF file and look for the name .
- When a file is digitally signed, the tab Digital Signatures is present in the properties of the catalog file.
- Well, I manually counted all printers listed in all INF files.
- I wrote a small PowerShell script which reads the printer names from all available INF files.
In the above example, I assume that the signtool.exe is located in the default installation directory of the Windows Driver Kit. At this point, it may be wise to export the HP officejet 5740 driver certificate. You will need this in one of the following steps. While in the Personal certificate store, select the corresponding certificate with a right-mouse click and go to All Tasks \ Export. At the end of the wizard you will have a .CER file .

Why is my printer not connecting to my computer?
First, try restarting your computer, printer and wireless router. To check if your printer is connected to your network: Print a Wireless Network Test report from the printer control panel. You may need to connect your printer to your network again.
I tried running a chkdsk /f but it didn’t help. You can reach me at James dot Teneyck at gmail dot com. I’m working on the possiblity to capture the personal settings on a specific driver to push it further on anothers computers. In case you would like to install the certificate on the local server without using Group Policies, I recommend to use PowerShell.
I was going to write a script to grab the name of the printer from the INF and low and behold as I read your article, you had already done the leg work. Again, thank you for writing this clear, concise article with excellent examples and pertinent screenshots. When trying to install a Brother 6200 on my Win 10 laptop, the installer package from the manufacturer throws an error that the file folder is corrupted and unreadable. Can you tell me maybe which folder it’s likely referring to and how I might resolve this error?
