Solved DriverStore Explorer - No Go!

Has anyone experimented with DriverStore Explorer. It takes the output of the PnpUtil command and sets it up graphically, so that you can easily remove driver packages that you no longer need.

I attempted "enumerating" so that a fresh list would appear. Nothing shows up, and there is no error. I also attempted redirecting the command pnputil -e to a text file, but there was no output. It does output to the screen in a command window however.

I had installed the .NET v3.5 Framework and I have US-Eng as my choice of language. What gives?

That's excellent. PnPFind works with aplomb. I went from 1.24 gb to 721 mb
