[wix-users] Current state of driver deployment

Hi all,

I'm having on-going problems with DIFXApp and I just wanted to check in 
and see if this is still the expected way to deal with driver 
installation, and whether anything has gotten better since the 
information discovered in this thread:


As pointed out in the thread, it really seems that the expected method 
of installing drivers does not at all fit well with software deployment. 
Is this still the case? There's a recurring issue where the DIFXApp 
custom actions leave things in a broken state, and a repair is needed to 
correct the issue (even to uninstall). This mainly seems to be an issue 
with rollback, but given the occurrences we're seeing here, that can't 
be the only thing causing it. From reading the link above, it seems that 
DIFXApp won't be fixed, and that it might not even be possible. Has 
anything changed in the years since that thread? I have looked online 
for updated information several times and I always keep coming back to 
the same information.
