PNPutil.exe support for windows driver installation

As we know DIFx is deprecated. So now we are using pnputil.exe for installing various Windows drivers. 

Is there any specific option we can follow to create an installer that includes pnputil functionality within InstallShield?

Hi there, 

I am also encountering the same scenario, did you have any work around for this in the end?

For older device drivers are compatible with DIf'x method of installation. 

For newer version, we need to change INF section similar to older one, then install is works for new binaries. 

but ultimately if installshield support pnputil.exe default, it would be easier for us.
