Windows 7: Here is a VERY helpful DOS command.

27 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit (6.1, Build 7600)
Here is a VERY helpful DOS command.

For anyone who needs to wants to check driver dates. Run an elevated command prompt and type "driverquery". It will list all drivers with their perspective dates. If you then right click on on the top of the window and click properties then check the box for quickedit mode. Then select the list and ctrl c. Save that in a text file. Boom you have a master list of stuff you need to update. Just figured I would put that out there. Figured it might help anyone with driver issues.

Some more info for those interested.

You can modify the output of the command with various switches, and redirect the output to another program. For instance, use the /V switch to produce a detailed listing, and the /FO switch with the Csv parameter to read the output in Excel:

driverquery /v /fo csv > drvlist.csv

Open Drvlist.csv in Excel to see a neatly formatted list of all your hardware.
