Problem creating catalog file from inf file in windows 10 home 64-bit

Hello, I am pretty green with instrument control and trying to self- learn how to create USB drivers using VISA.

 

I have a pair of inf files after running the driver wizard and  from the white paper I was reading I am supposed to go to command line and do something like this to get catalog files:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\x86>Inf2Cat/driver:C:\Users\Owner\Documents\National Instruments\NI-VISA\prefix\/os:8_X64,8_X86,Server8_X64,Server2008R2_X64,7_X64,7_X86,Server2008_X64,Server2008_X86,Vista_X64,Vista_X86,Server2003_X64,Server2003_X86,XP_X64,XP_X86,2000,10_X86,10_X64,Server10_X64
Operating systems parameter missing.

 

But I get the last line "Operating systems parameter missing" and the catalog file is NOT created.

 

Can someone please tell me what is wrong here.

Hi blessedk,

 

Try to use the quotes and spaces as below and it should work.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\x86>Inf2Cat /driver:"C:\Users\Owner\Documents\National Instruments\NI-VISA\prefix\" /os:8_X64,8_X86,Server8_X64,Server2008R2_X64,7_X64,7_X86,Server2008_X64,Server2008_X86,Vista_X64,Vista_X86,Server2003_X64,Server2003_X86,XP_X64,XP_X86,2000,10_X86,10_X64,Server10_X64
