Document all the installed Drivers
Tuesday, September 19, 2006
Many a times it happens that your drivers get corrupted, and at times due to some virus activity. Say you installed a wrong driver version and later you are unable to recover the last stable version of the driver. Then in such a situation it is always better to make back ups or create a restore point. However, Windows XP Command Prompt comes with a command called driverquery. This command displays a list of all installed device drivers and their properties. System administrators can alternatively use the command with redirection operator, to save the information to a text file and maintain a record of that.

For example: enter this at the command prompt : driverquery > log.txt

The text will look something like this

Module Name    Display Name    Driver Type    Link Date
============ ====================== ============= ======================
ACPI          Microsoft ACPI Driver Kernel      8/4/2004 11:37:35 AM
ACPIEC       ACPIEC          Kernel      8/18/2001 2:27:55 AM

You can try out some of these extensions also

driverquery /fo list
driverquery /fo csv
driverquery /nh
driverquery /s ipaddress
