Hi all, I need to do the following: I have a driver installed in one machine (Sdo Sensor V2 version 10.0.10240.16384, Microsoft) that I need to install in another machine. Is there a way to extract the driver from machine 1 and install it in machine 2? I know that there are 3rd party tools that do this, any recommendation? Thanks
P.D.:The reason I want to do this is that I can't find these drivers anywhere on the web, not even in Dell's Support site

from cmd prompt type..

Dism /online /Export-Driver /Destination:D:\Drivers
I successfully completed the above step but in the list of exported folders I see no reference to the driver I'm looking for, i.e. I searched in the "D:\DRIVERS" folder for WUDfrd.sys and found nothing
This is the driver I need as it shows in machine 1:

Then download: Driver 4.1 Backup Download. Unzip and run, you will get a screen with the names of the drivers. check mark on what you want, click on back up now. Save it to a USB. Connect to the other PC then restore:

That is because it is a Microsoft Driver
Dism /Export is for 3rd party drivers

machine 2 - should auto load that driver or update that driver through windows update

do you have driver updates blocked on machine 2 ??

Hi topgun, will this utility also backup/restore Microsoft drivers or just 3rd party ones? Thanks

do you have driver updates blocked on machine 2 ??
That might be a possibility, I might have driver updates blocked on machine2, will check it up and report back. Regardless, is there any way to perform same procedure for Microsoft drivers too?

you can get a complete list of drivers with dism, but EXPORT only does 3rd party drivers

try the Double Driver program TopGun suggested - backup machine 1 drivers
and search the list as you did with exported drivers

I tried the Double Driver 4.1 program, I successfully created the driver backup, however when restoring it I was unable because "the 3rd party driver lacks digital signature information". I found this weird because the original driver that was backed up was digitally signed by Microsoft. Anyway, I could override digital signature requirement by pressing SHIFT+RESTART/Troubleshoot/Advanced Options/Option 7. After having Doible Driver 4.1 successfully install the driver, went to Device Manager and the driver was installed but without any digital signature. The functionality that this driver is supposed to provide (Auto Rotation when using laptop in tent ot tablet mode) is not present even though the driver is installed (Auto Rotation unlock is not present in Action Center or in Display Advanced Properties). Any hint? I'm about to give up :(

I finally solved the issue by performing a clean install of Windows. Now the "Rotation Lock" button displays in the Action Center and the option to Lock Rotation also shows in the Display's Settings. Windows properly rotates when tilting the laptop, so working fine. Something was obviously messed up in my original Windows install.
