I used WIX and DIFXAPP to install a device driver for Windows 2019 and also
previous Windows versions, but the same procedure does not work for Windows

I added ForceInstall="yes"to the Component Id but it does not fix the

<da:Driver AddRemovePrograms="no" PlugAndPlayPrompt="no"

Log output:

DIFXAPP: INFO: Installing INF file 'C:\Program
Files\ZSego\XxClient\XxDriver\Xx_.inf' (Plug and Play).

DIFXAPP: INFO: Looking for Model Section ...

DIFXAPP: INFO: No matching devices found in INF
on the Machine.

DIFXAPP: INFO: No drivers installed. No devices found that match driver(s)
contained in

DIFXAPP: INFO: RETURN: DriverPackageInstallW (0xE000020B)

DIFXAPP: INFO: {color:#de350b}The device(s) for which the driver is being
installed has not been plugged into the computer.{color}

What has been changed for Windows 2022 regarding installing device driver
for "not plugged in" devices.
I'd appreciate your input,
