Windows 7: Device Metadata installation information

30 Dec 2008   #1

Device Metadata installation information

I am tring to implement "Device Metadata" for Windows 7. But after installing the devicemetadata-ms file, there is nothing changed in Devices and Printers folder. I chose to install the file by INF file and it certainly shows in Driver Detail of Device Manager without error, even in Event Viewer. Does anyone know that where I can find more installation or debug information inner Windows? I used
Windows 7 6936 Build, did it support "Device Metadata" function?

Thanks for you kindness!!
I am developing a multi-function device and want it has a fixed name and interfaces. For example, when the device export HID interface and its name will become "HID Keyboard Device". If the device doesn't export HID function, the device name will be different. I am afraid that will make customers confused.
