How to create a Pre-Config file that will not break the WHQL process.
HP Driver Configuration Editor
Description
The HP Driver Configuration Editor is a small Windows application that the user can use to
edit the configuration file associated with a particular driver. The configuration file controls
the printer driver settings and takes effect when the driver is installed.
This tool does not handle any part of the deployment or installation of the driver. Rather, the
configuration file is modified and saved back to the same driver directory in which it was
opened.
It is intended for use in environments where there is an established process for deploying
drivers or where the server platform is not Windows-based. To support any Novell or PSA
Point and Print environments, this is the pre-configuration tool of choice.
Access/installation
The HP Driver Configuration Editor can be downloaded from hp.com at the following URL:
http://www.hp.com/go/hpdpc_sw
After it has been downloaded, the compressed package can be expanded into a local or
network directory. No formal installation process is required; as soon as the package has
been expanded, it is ready to be run. The application can be run by double-clicking
HPBCFGAP.EXE in the destination directory.
This application shares functional features and user interface with the Customization Utility
and Web-based versions of the HP driver pre-configuration.

    Procedure In order to use the HP Driver Configuration Editor, the driver(s) to be configured must be in their standard .INF-file driver packages that are obtained from HP (either from the HP Web site or from the product in-box CD-ROM). The driver(s) must be stored in a location for which the user of the tool has write-access.

    Figure 2 Digital Signature Not Found dialog box This dialog appears only in Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows 2003 Server, and only when drivers are being installed directly on the machine (not when they are being installed as a Point and Print client). Open a configuration file and modify it to meet your requirements.

    Bundle Selection The Bundle Selection field lists the various hardware bundles available for the product and, when changed, modifies the individual settings to reflect the bundle contents. Figure 3 Device Settings tab Printing Preferences tab Settings in the Printing Preferences tab, illustrated in Figure 4, are related to the actual formatting of documents as they are printed.

    Constraints The .CFG/.CFM file is encoded with all of the same constraints that the drivers enforce. As a result, if the user of the HP Driver Configuration Editor attempts to set features to an invalid combination, a warning dialog box appears, and the feature change that triggered the warning is returned to its original state.

    For more information, see the Microsoft Developer Network Web site at: http://msdn.microsoft.com/default.asp Driver preconfiguration using a .CFM file is not compatible with any remote installation methods. The .CFM file must be copied to the driver installation directory on the local machine in order to take effect. See Copying a .CFM file to the driver directory.
