How to Make Windows 7 Drivers Work on Windows 8/8.1 (INF Modding)

Windows 8 has been officially launched and the most common problems that are encountered when you use a new OS are related to driver compatibility issues. Some drivers do not support Windows 8 and when you force to install the driver, Windows 8 will reject it. Different with previous versions of windows, the regulation of the drivers on Windows 8 is very tight, and you need more effort when you install a driver that does not officially support Windows 8. This time I will share my experience installing driver from a Prolink PCM100 USB Modem on Windows 8.

A few weeks ago I tried to install a driver from Prolink PCM100 on Windows 8 RTM x64. I used the “compatibility mode” on the setup.exe file and install it normally. After that I checked in the Device Manager and found the device status was “unknown device” then I tried to update the driver manually (still in the device manager) using the “.inf” file and the Windows 8 RTM accepted the “.inf” file, though the file is designed only for Windows 7.
