Plug in IDWedgeKB – if the PC asks for the device drivers, point the installer to the Win 7_8_10_r3 cat folder in the inf files folder.
If the PC does not ask for drivers, then the directions below show how to update the driver after the PC has finished trying to recognize the IDWEdgeKB.
The PC did not ask for inf file or device drivers, so wait for it to finish installation process.
