The meaning of XX in oemXX.inf and oemXX.pnf found in driver document CyUSB.chm and CyUSB.pdf file
The CyUSB.pdf and CyUSB.chm file in the directory Cypress Suite USB 3.4.4\Driver says “While reinstalling the driver with another .inf file which contains the same VID- PID combination, it's safe to remove all oemXX.inf and oemXX.pnf files from the directory "C:\WINDOWS\inf\" which has same VID-PID combination”. What is the meaning of XX in the above statement?
XX in refers to numbers (e.g. oem12.inf oem12.pnf ). Whenever a driver is bound to a USB device in Windows, .inf and .pnf files are created with the names oemXX.inf and oemXX.pnf in C:\WINDOWS\inf.
