SDI (driver installation utility)

#1 Post by Midas » Fri Jul 07, 2017 10:00 am

SDI (aka Snappy Driver Installer; https://sdi-tool.org/) is a portable driver installation utility (untested!, but settings are kept in 'settings.cfg' text file in a 'Tools\SDI' sub-folder) with a quirk: it is also a torrent client and that's how it downloads its updates and driver packs (the full package is a whopping 12.5GB download).

If you're a PC technician, keep Snappy Driver Installer on your USB flash drive or external hard drive and take it with you wherever you go. In environments with no Internet access you can quickly get things working. No more searching for drivers after a clean install, just let Snappy Driver Installer do it's thing and your job will be done in no time.

SDI v1.18.0 (R1800) released (no changelog, see OP).

Incidentally, options and settings help can be read at https://sdi-tool.org/settings/.

And here's a yaP launcher configuration you can use instead of the batch file included:

Code: Select all

; configuration file for yaP v0.7.1 (http://rolandtoth.hu/yaP/)
; application name: Snappy Driver Installer
; version: v1.18.0
; website: http://www.sdi-tool.org/

[GENERAL]
application = App\SDI_R1800.exe :: App\SDI_x64_R1800.exe
commandline = /d"{EXEPATH}" "{APPEXE}" %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9

[...]
