I would like to know the exact paths to install INF and SYS files for Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP.
I thought that it is "WINDIR\inf" for INF files and "WINDIR\system32\drivers" for SYS files
But this fails for instance with some XP os. It seems that there is another important folder named "WINDIR\LastGood\system32\drivers"

I also won't have to since we're switching to a Windows Installer-based setup for this next release which automatically takes care of it.
Do you actually want to install the USB driver or just want to make the files available to the user/system? 'cause you should be able to just run the INF routine and let it to do its thing.
Let me know, and I'll pull out those printouts in the meantime.

I just want to make the files available to the user/system.
Actually, I am using IE Express 2.12 and it does not work well regarding usb drivers installation. So I am checking what new software version shall I buy.
I would like to know if IE Express 4 is able to store INF and SYS files in there right folders, whathever is the operating system (98, ME, 2000, XP, XP pack1, XPpro, XPpro pack1), or if I have to buy a more powerfull software like IE.
And for my knowledge, I would like to know what are these different path.

Yes, it is a bit technical. I will read carefully these pages until this becomes more clear.
