HP MIK - ARM64 Drivers

Hi,

I use HP MIK (version 4.4.0.16362) to import drivers into Configuration Manager. Everytime I select the following SoftPaqs to create a Driver Package, everything downloads fine, but the import process of the INF-files in the ARM64 folders fails because the ARM64 INF-files are not valid to Configuration Manager and the whole import process fails. The really bad thing is that any subsequent driver that should actually be imported is no longer imported, since the import process is completely aborted on this ARM64.

- HP USB-C Universal Dock (sp103558)
--> sp103558\bin\WinRS\ARM64\dlcdcncm.inf

- DisplayLink Graphic Driver (sp113541)
--> sp113541\bin\src\driver\WinRS\ARM64\dlcdcncm.inf

- Wacom AES Digitizer Driver (sp113715)
--> sp113715\bin\src\driver\ARM64\WacHIDRouterISDU.inf

Is it possible to programm HP MIK (maybe with an option) to ignore ARM64 Drivers and not even try to import them? I also have the same problem when using HPIA since this ARM64 INF-files are invalid to ConfigMgr.

Thx

Hello

if I were you, I would delete the ARM64 folders until HP takes in consideration what you suggested that could take weeks, months or never at all.

 

bye

That is what I am doing right now as a workaround. But the problem is that the import-process starts automatically after the download process. If I am not fast enought to delete those files, the process will fail. I am thinking of creating a PowerShell Script, which is checking for ARM64 folders over and over again, and if it finds one, it deletes it with all the files in it. That would be a littel bit better for automation purposes.

I've done a script now. If anyone else wants to use it:

 

# Checks for a specific folder $Folder in Path $PathToCheck and deletes it with all files if found.

$PathToCheck = "\\server\DriverSourcePathToCheck"
$Folder = "arm64"
cd "$PathToCheck"
While ($True) {
Write-Host "CHECKING FOR FILES" -ForegroundColor Cyan
Sleep 1
$Items = gci -recurse
    Foreach ($Item in $Items) {
        if ($Item.Name -eq "$Folder") {
            Sleep 3
            Remove-Item $item.PSPath -Force -Recurse
            Write-Host "Folder found and deleted:" $item.PSPath -ForegroundColor Yellow
            Sleep 3
        }
    }
}

This sample script is provided AS IS without warranty of any kind.

Just run this during HP MIK drivers download & import process....
