Hello Suraj,

I suspect, the custom action not getting executed properly due to the fact that HMI0000.inf path not getting resolved in run time. try to use absolute path of the HMI0000.inf file in the command line argument.

I also noticed that you used "\p" "HMI0000.inf" "2" command line( entire command line should be in between "", no need of using separate "" for each arguement) in the custom action.

Could you please kindly try to install the driver package from command line manually and make use of the same in the custom action and check if the installer shows the same behavior?

Hope this helps.
