Solved How do I install these drivers?

Hi, just did a new install of 8.1-pro on an old Surface Pro 2 using the media download tool.

I went to the msoft site
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/dow...042&cffa64c5-a636-96fc-e97a-0e907fcc4c04=True

...and downloaded the "SurfacePro2_Win8x_160501_2.zip"

I unzipped it to a folder, but there is nothing executable in there. It creates a bunch of folders but no .exe or .msu so how do I install them?

The "Install Instructions" on that page are typical msoft and totally useless. :mad:

Thanks

Thanks, but we are seeing different things I guess. Here's what I get and I just noticed, it assumes the download has failed. Solved -- see it below the pic.

But moot as I figured a way around it by brute force. I opened the Device Manager and then did "Update Driver" and pointed it at the base unzipped folder and made sure that "Use sub-folders" was checked and it found a lot of the stuff. Rebooted and all good.

Thanks anyway.

If there are .inf files in the folder you right click on them and get an option to install for future reference
