I made a context menu app that does 2 things.

1) Context command INF Write Files ---
Right click on a directory that you want to add to an INF file for distribution. It creates the INF structure, with all file names ready for copying. It adds generic data in most [sections] needed.

2.) Context command INF Copy Files
Right click on a directory AFTER you have used the previous context command. A new directory called INF_PREPPED will be created and all the files below the directory will be copied to it.

Now just add any files needed from other places, add the COPY SECTIONS for those. Fill in the variables that are pre-made. Add any AddRegs etc.

I do not see a feature in this forum for attaching anything. If you are interested in checking it out, let me know.

Wrote it in AutoIt script. Seems like a handy tool for me for what it does.

Late,

Yep, AutoIt is my fave for anything to do with strings. So easy to parse stuff out. And there is a GUI to boot. LOL, I have made a few apps that worked well, but were confusing to code without an IDE.
