PnPUtil (PnPUtil.exe) is a command line tool that lets an administrator perform the following actions on driver packages:

  • Adds a driver package to the driver store.

  • Deletes a driver package from the driver store.

  • Enumerates the driver packages that are currently in the driver store. Only driver packages that are not in-box packages are listed. An in-box driver package is one which is included in the default installation of Windows or its service packs.
