using .exe file in ndiswrapper when all it wants is .inf

Postby pjsmetana » Sun Dec 06, 2009 1:38 pm

I'm trying to get a windows wireless driver (sp45515.exe) to work with ndiswrapper. All ndiswrapper asks for is an .inf file. I ran the .exe in wine, opened its file, and pulled the .inf from there, but that comes back as "Invalid Driver!" so I figure I must be doing something wrong.

Any ndis gurus out there?

What's your version of Wine, and what's the chipset in use? You can try to unpack it in a virtual machine.

Tnx.
