When you attempt to add a driver in Windows NT, you may receive the following error message:
This message may appear even though the Oemsetup.inf or Oemsetnt.inf file exists in the location specified during the installation of the driver.
Setup cannot find Oemsetup.inf or Oemsetnt.inf. Please type a new path to the Oemsetup.inf file.
The [PlatformsSupported] section of the .inf file may not list a bus type (EISA, ISA, and so on) that exists on your computer.
Make sure that the .inf file contains the correct information for your computer's bus type in the [PlatformsSupported] section.
You must also make sure that you are installing the proper driver for your computer's bus type. You cannot install a driver that was specifically written for a bus type other than the type available on your computer.
Either an Oemsetup.inf or an Oemsetnt.inf file is required to provide installation instructions for adding a driver. The Oemsetup.inf or Oemsetnt.inf file contains a [PlatformsSupported] section similar to the following sample section:
[PlatformsSupported] EISA "Jazz-Internal Bus" ISA PCI
