Issue/Introduction

After Deploy Anywhere provides the Critical and Non-Critical drivers we reboot to production, and find that not all drivers are installed from the Driver Pack that was imported for a model of machine.

Cause

This is caused by an Older DPInst that is used during the installation of non-critical drivers, we found that the older version is struggling with some drivers, and the newest version of DPInst works with these drivers.

Resolution

  1. Download attached DPInst_2.1.0.0.zip and extract.

    4. <drive>:\Program Files\Altiris\Deployment\Imaging\ghost\x86\DPInst\X86
