I just downloaded a fresh replacement driver from Intel, which is
in zipped form, in a folder on my desktop. There are several
files in the zip.

How do I unpack the files and get it/them applied?

But make sure the driver keeps his hands on the steering wheel.

Hi, Dave-
In recent versions of Windows, you can right-click a Zip file and select "extract all." You can also right-click and "open" or double-click the Zip file to see what's inside, and you can then run or view single files within the Zip file without extracting them (may not work if you need to run multiple files at the same time, so you should extract them).

Fine so far, Joe, but what then? Extract them to a temporary folder, if there's a setup routine, run it, if not look for some kind of ReadMe help telling you where to put what.

Yeah, it gets a bit confusing once you've unZipped. If there's a file titled "setup.exe," THAT'S the one to click. sometimes, I just keep double-clicking files until I find one that does something.
And you know, I've always had success with that method...

Dear Uncle Dave0,

A little more information PLEASE.

What is the system you are using? (well Intell ...duhhh)
NO idjet. What is your hardware platform? AND processer?
Tablet
Desktop
Notebook
Wireless Router
Server ( I sincerely hope NOT)
Intel 7 processer

What is your software?
Win Version?
Linux

Place the DLLs in the directory they will be used by
What purpose/app is the dll intended for? TARGET or PATH or Directory or Program Files?
i.e. You want to "flash" an EPROM chip (erasable programable read only memory)
You want to alter a setting on the MB Bios.
You want to "root" the device (I hope NOT)

Sncerely,
Gargoyle

Being a wise man I imagine your issue is solved by following the GUEST advice after yours.

The problem being that system drivers used by hardware which may be needed by anything usually get parked in one place, whereas program-specific drivers should be (but often aren't) parked in the program folder tree.

Left-clicking the zip file, called USB2.0%20Driver, yields one file, named USB20. Leftclicking that file, USB20, yields the following list:

HCCOIN.DLL
USB2.CAT
USB2.INF
USBEHCL.SYS
USBHUB20.SYS
USBPORT.SYS
Version.txt

Printing the Version.txt file gives:
[Version]
NAME=USB2.0 Driver
OS=Win2K
VERSION:
LANG=WW

Nothing tells me what the function of this driver is, nor where it is to be located. I cannot imagine that it is to permanently reside on and operate from Desktop, where it was put by the download process.

I Googled USB2.CAT, and it appears that this driver is to drive
(what else?) USB ports under the USB 3.1 specification.

At least that's what I've gathered.

But where and how the various SYS, CAT, DLL, and INF file are to be installed leaves me cold.

I'll post this now, in the hope that others will know that set of answers. Be back later.

In the meantime, I'm going to look in various directories, in the hope of seeing files denominated as USB, to serve as guideposts.

I haven't been able to find where the USB-type drivers are stashed.

Unfortunately I know as much as nothing about drivers, but, as Mudcat knows, my field of expertise is "general problem solving".

To solve a problem, we first must know what the problem is. Where and why did you download that file? If it is from a website, that site must offer sufficient instructions, otherwise best delete the file.

Do not install anything unless you have good reasons to trust the source, know exactly what it is for, and what to do with it.

Dave - Recent versions of windows have used "Plug And Play". Usually this means that when you connect new hardware, the Windows version you are using searches for the correct software on your computer. Sometimes it doesn't find it where it expects, so you are given the option of telling it where to look.
With your download,you probably need to Unzip the files to somewhere you can identify, then plug in whatever USB device the driver is supposed to be for.
Hopefully Windows should then go into Plug&Play mode.

If that doesn't work, report back and we can try alternatives.
Quack!

LOL, Geoff! Do you consider the almost 19 years since Win '95 to be 'recent?'

Yep, I know time goes more quickly than we'd like, and that initial implementations were particularly rubbish, but still...

But seriously, Geoff and Grishka talk a good deal of sense.

Uncle_DaveO , If you let us know exactly what you're try to do and why, then better advice will doubtlessly be easier to give.

Some program told me that I had drivers out of date, and I wanted to get current with what I should have.

I Googled "driver download" (or words like that), and chose the Intel site.

Intel ran a scan of my computer for outdates, and came up with two drivers, one of which, as I recall, wouldn't do for some reason I forget. I asked for the other one to be downloaded, which Intel told me would be in zipped form.

The download came onto Desktop. I knew that couldn't be the permanent and operative location for the six files (see below), and I decided to ask at Mudcat.

The contents of the zip were as follows:
HCCOIN.DLL
USB2.CAT
USB2.INF
USBEHCL.SYS
USBHUB20.SYS
USBPORT.SYS
Version.txt

Printing the Version.txt file gives:
[Version]
NAME=USB2.0 Driver
OS=Win2K
VERSION:
LANG=WW

Hi-

1. Which program?

2. Did said program refuse to run or exhibit some other problem with the "old" driver you had?

3. The text file seems to indicate that the driver concerned is for the Windows 2000 OS - if so,I don't think its what you want.

He can always roll back the update if it proves a flop.

If anyone needs to do that, right-click on the (My)Computer icon in Explorer and select Manage. In sytem Tools in the left hand column, select Device Manager and it gives you a list of all the hardware it recognises (and sometimes things it doesn't). Click on the appropriate one, a window with the specific features of the driver loads, and one tab references the driver itself. A driver interfaces between the specific needs of the particular piece of hardware and the generic features Windows offers for that kind of data.
There are two ways to update. The .INF file may be installable, and running from a right-click it might work. It is often in text format, and may give you more data on the driver itself, in passing. The other way, use the Update button from the driver tab. Your system may refuse to update it if it's a backwards step.
And of course you'll see the roll back option below that if it doesn't ackle.
