[Tutorial] INF Part-1 "[Version]"

Recommended Posts

This is the first part of my INF tutorial called Anatomy of INF's. I will be explaining how they work and how easy it is to get started making INF addons.

I will start by explaining the [Version] section which exist at the begging of all INF files


The Version section is at the beginning of every INF file (all INF files must have this section.) It determines what Platforms or Operating Systems the files can be installed on.

For Windows NT-based operating systems (NT, 2000, XP)

Signature="$Windows NT$"

For Windows 9x (95, 98, ME)

Signature="$Windows 95$"

For ALL Windows Versions (95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP)


Note: Note the signature string recognition is case-insensitive. So, for example, you can use either $Chicago$ or $CHICAGO$.
