Editors' review

If you need to perform enumeration of a SysPrep driver store, this is the program for you. If that sentence makes little sense, you can safely skip this application. SysPrep Driver Scanner's very basic button and display interface rightly assumes users require no hand-holding. A command line option contains the same functionality as the GUI interface.

Discovering directories that contain select driver types is greatly simplified with this tool. Copying the list of directories to your Windows Registry is a one-step process. The program includes no help on screen, but the publisher has extensive online documentation. That site also includes methods to use this application to support the Microsoft System Preparation Tool.

We wished there had been a hot key or button to open the Registry to the proper entry, but SysPrep Driver Scanner's simple direct methods simply work. System administrators who use the Microsoft System Preparation Tool will find this freeware helps reduce their workload.

    "Don't expect an automatic scan."

    February 03, 2010   |   By hqsarasota

    Version: SysPrep Driver Scanner 1.3.1

    Pros

    I guess watching the video (which is not included), explains how to use this program and it is good - but I instead went to Windows Update and other primaries (like Intel), had my computer scanned, and the updated drivers correctly installed.

    Cons

    Help, instructions, and ease of use was too cumbersome for me.

    Summary

    Please try primary manufactures first before using this driver update program. They usually automatically scan and install the correct, updated drivers you need.

    Does what it says on the box. No fuss, no messing around, no problem.

    It didn't take the kids to school or do the dishes. Other than that, superb.

    "GREAT TOOL AND FREE TOO! Very helpful for Sysprep hardware independent imaging."

    August 29, 2006   |   By poeinator

    Version: SysPrep Driver Scanner 1.3

    Pros

    1) Use it in a bat file to dynamically update the location of drivers on a computer before running Sysprep.

    2) Software has a complete list of directions on the software homepage, including how to use it in a bat file.

    3) Comes with a simple to use GUI interface too.

    2) Can create an entry in System Properties that tells the user when the Computer Image was created or any other information desired like the computer manufacturer.

    3) Programs checks to make sure it doesn't create any duplicate registry entries if ran more than once.

    4) Creates a work-a-round for the limited number of characters allowed in a Sysprep INF file in the OemPnPDriversPath specification.

    5) Just is an entirely complete tool and if something is missing the creator is willing to make revisions and additions.

    Cons

    Not really a complaint but it takes about half an hour to learn how to use the tool through reading the documentation and experimentation with it. Thats to be expected though; no big deal.
