Default Deploying USB drivers for charging

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I'm trying to deploy JUST the usb driver for charging the blackberry pearl to around 300 people.

I have dropped the two files rimusb.sys, rimusbnt.inf into the sys32 folder but when the blackberry is connected it is detected as a USB storage device. I can get around this by going into Device Manager and browsing to the rimusbnt.inf file, and installing it that way, but this method is not practical for 300 users.

I have also tried right clicking the inf file and selecting install.

And I have tried the following command <c:\windows\system32\rundll32 syssetup,SetupInfObjectInstallAction DefaultInstall 128 .\rimusbnt.inf>

I believe there may be some sort of issue with the driver being unsigned?

Has anyone come across a way of deploying this driver??

cheers

Smile Pearl Charging

Hi,

Yep i had problems with this but solved it.

You'll need to down load the Driver Package Installer (dpinst.exe) from microsoft. Driver Package Installer (DPInst)

You'll need RimUSB.SYS rimusbnt.cat and rimusbnt.inf

Once you have dpinst.exe Create a directory which contains RimUSB.SYS rimusbnt.cat and rimusbnt.inf and dpinst.exe

from within that dir run dpinst.exe /s this will install the drivers.

For deployment you can use a GP we use Zen and works for all machines.

Here's a link to all my troubles

Better yet, you can download the USB and modem drivers prepackaged directly from RIM. Its on the same page as the desktop manager near the bottom of the page.

Question

Doug,
Add me to the list. I'm looking where you suggest, but don't see anything regarding just USB drivers for downloading. Perhaps you can direct us more specifically? We'd appreciate the help.

I've downloaded Desktop Manager numerous times, but don't recall seeing just the drivers on any of their lists.
