The command line must be configured to perform a silent install and you should also check the box in the application's Properties to hide the application so that it will not show up during the LiteTouch Deployment wizard. We will add the driver to our Task Sequence as follows:
Now, to ensure that this application/driver only gets installed on the machines that we need to install it on, we can take advantage...
