Anybody can please clarify the following.
I need to install a modem in windows xp through c program or batch script. Modem i have is a serial modem.Whenever i connect the modem that is coming as a serial port.I have to install that modem using windows standard medem driver(Modem.sys).That i have done through control panel item 'phone and modem' . But i want to do that installation using c program or batch script. Can anybody please give some suggestions? Or is that possible to create dial up connection without installation to connect to gprs network ?
