    Again DevCon with another problem

    Ok, before you all write "Do A search". I did search, that's how I found the program devcon. But I have a problem not discussed before.

    " devcon remove @usb\* " Removes all USB devices and " devcon rescan " rescans all devices.

    That's working great, the problem is that I have 4 USB-devices on my CarPC and I just want the GPS-Mouse to be removed/reset.
    Ok, I looked up the Hardware-ID (if that really is the hardware id) in the hardware properties:
    USB\VID_0784&PID_1070&MI_00\6&1D3C9A3D&0&0000

    Now I tried " devcon remove @usb\VID_0784&PID_1070&MI_00\6&1D3C9A3D&0&0000 " but that didn't work. DevCon always says "No device removed".

    I don't want all the USB-devices removed just to reset the GPS-Mouse.

    So I have two questions:
    1) can I automate the appearing requesters so I don't have to click them (install automatically or choose driver manually, blablabla) ?

    2) The most important question: How do I just restart the GPS-Mouse with DevCon ?

    Ok, I just found out that I had a typo in this one. If typed correctly it works as I described.

    My first question is still not solved though:
    1) can I automate the appearing requesters so I don't have to click them (install automatically or choose driver manually, blablabla) ?

    All you have to put in a batch file is these two lines

    devcon disable *PID_1070
    devcon enable *PID_1070

    Then to automate it you can use girder and push a button on a remote or else you can do what i did was use the resume setting in frodoplayer to run the batch file everytime you resume from hibernate or standby.

    All you really need to do is disable and enable them you don't have to remove the device therfore circumventing you driver intalling interaction problem

    Devcon? OMFG - this is exactly what I have been looking for!

    My GPS introduces noise somewhere on the motherboard, and it will be nice to be able to disable it when I'm not using it.

    Thanks guys!
