DevCon DriverFiles

Displays the full path and file name of installed INF files and device driver files for the specified devices. Valid only on the local computer.

    devcon driverfiles {* | ID [ID ...] | =class [ID [ID ...]]} 


Represents all devices on the computer.

Specifies all or part of a hardware ID, compatible ID, or device instance ID of a device. When specifying multiple IDs, type a space between each ID. IDs that include an ampersand character (&) must be enclosed in quotation marks.

The following special characters modify the ID parameter.

Character Description

Matches any character or no character. Use the wildcard character () to create an ID pattern, for example, disk.


Indicates a device instance ID, for example, @ROOT\FTDISK\0000.


(single quote)

Matches the string literally (exactly as it appears). Precede a string with a single quote to indicate that an asterisk is part of the ID name and is not a wildcard character, for example, '*PNP0600, where *PNP0600 (including the asterisk) is the hardware ID.

Specifies the device setup class of the devices. The equal sign (=) identifies the string as a class name.

You can also specify hardware IDs, compatible IDs, device instance IDs, or ID patterns following the class name. Type a space between each ID or pattern. DevCon finds devices in the class that match the specified IDs.


The DevCon DriverFiles operation runs only on the local computer.
