When trying to import the ‘Intel(R) Chipset Device Software‘ inf files into Component Designer for Windows Embedded Standard 2009, I have been getting the error “An error occurred while getting the vendors list section name”.
My solution is to open the .inf files and change this section:
[Manufacturer] %INTEL%=Intel,NT.5.1,NTamd64 ; =================== Intel ================== [Intel]
[Manufacturer] %INTEL%=Intel,NT.5.1,NTamd64,NTx86 ; =================== Intel ================== [Intel.NTx86]
The problem is the Manufacturer section lists Intel as the base section, with a NT.5.1 (Vista) and NTamd64 (64bit) driver section, but does not list the x86 option. Also the section [Intel] acts as a catch all section, but Component Designer is looking for each [base].[sub] section. The normal Windows driver install handles the Intel scripts, but Component Designer does not.
