A few things:
• The installed and portable versions can both be used from a computer without an internet connection (like if Windows can't recognize your network driver). Device Doctor will save a .html file you can open on a computer that has a connection and you can save the drivers from there.

• The portable version is slightly different from the "installed bundle" version. The interface looks the exact same but the installed version enumerates the devices it finds with registry keys (ex: {4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}). Both of them found the same number of drivers for my system (25) and from what I can tell they're all the same drivers. This might be useful if you'd rather write down identifying information than transfer an HTML file on a USB stick.

Device Doctor isn't perfect but if you're having problems nailing down the right drivers it's always worth a shot. It's rare to see legitimate direct download driver scans -- many driver programs work like little more than advertisements.

This would be better with backup and restore function, too ^^

The compilation date for the extracted portable EXE is 2009-08-31 23:25:05 ... 8 yrs ago,
Where does "roberthedley" get a "we are back" in 2017, when the VirusTotal scan (of the extracted EXE) is dated 2008 ??
Nine years time difference ?

File source =
Download caption/link (portable version) = Device Doctor Portable (5.1 MB)
VirusTotal URL for extracted EXE =
File version
signature date = 2009-11-03 ... 8 yrs old
Compilation Timestamp = 2009-08-31 23:25:05 = Website not active (0-)
Firefox Browser = Firefox can’t find the server at
Palemoon browser = cannot be found

The resulting UI when run (scan for devices) is empty and recommends saving a HTML of the results, There are no results.
The HTML only provides a link to ... which no longer exists.

Do not waste your time on this program, it goes nowhere and does not provide any benefits.
