ConfigMgr: Drivers not applicable.

Consider the following scenario. You're running SCCM 2007 SP2 with R2 (or R3 for that matter) on Windows Server 2008 and want to deploy Windows 7 cliƫnts. When you try to import the drivers for your Windows 7 workstations into SCCM you might run into the issue when some drivers give the error:

The selected driver is not applicable to any supported platforms
You'll only get this error when you're trying to import drivers that are Windows 7 exclusive. This issue is due to the fact that SCCM uses the internal methods of handling inf files and Windows Server 2008 does not 'know' of Windows 7 yet. Install the following hotfix from Microsoft to fix this issue.

Remember, this is not applicable on Windows Server 2008 R2 but only for windows Server 2008.

Hope this helps.
