DriverQuery – Vista, Windows 2003, XP

When information is power and you want information on drivers.  Follow the link to the article for some enhanced instructions on how using this in PowerShell gives you even more details (see comments).


This little gem might seem like a font end to a PowerShell command, but for those not ready to bite off on PowerShell, here you go. This command line tools lets you display a list of installed device drivers. You’ll also find this in Windows 2003 and Windows XP.

DRIVERQUERY [/S system [/U username [/P [password]]]] [/FO format] [/NH] [/SI] [/V]

/S – optionally specifies a remote system to which you may connect
/U [domain\]user – optionally specifies the user context under which the command should be executed (if no domain is specified, current is assumed)

/FO format – optionally specifies the type of output to display (TABLE, LIST or CSV). Default is TABLE.
/NH – optionally used to indicate that a Column Header for TABLE and CSV output should not be provided
