looking for another way to invoke "scan for hardware changes"

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Jack B. Pollack, Nov 15, 2005.

  1. Anyone know of a way in XP to invoke the "scan for hardware changes" that
    you can do from within device manager/hardware either from a run line or
    command prompt (rundll32 maybe??).

    I want to be able to run it from a desktop icon.

    TIA

    Download and run Process Explorer
    http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/ProcessExplorer.html

    Run whatever you run to "scan for hardware changes" while it's working
    double click on the process to read it's image, copy the command line.

    Paste the command line to a short-cut.
