Zadig gives you the possibility of installing generic USB drivers on the fly. This can help you access USB devices through WinUSB or a libusbK-based application. The software can also be useful if you intend to upgrade a generic USB driver. Instead of looking for the drivers yourself, you can just click a button and have them up and running in no time.

The application comes as a single executable file, so you don't have to go through an installation process. It works on Windows XP and all later editions and it supports both 32 and 64-bit versions. However, if you are an Win XP user, you will need an older Zadig version.

Working with Zadig is quite easy. Selecting a driver, on the application's compact user interface, and clicking a button is sufficient to start installing. Alternatively, you can choose to install WCID or filter drivers or you can just extract the files without installing anything. It is also possible to retrieve a list of installed drivers, which can be replaced with the ones provided by Zadig.

The application doesn't come with too many functions, which makes it easy to master. Its interface can be expanded, to reveal a log, in case you wish to know everything about the files that have been added to your system. You can also find information about each supported driver, so there will be no guess work.

Installing additional USB drivers can be done in just a few seconds, thanks to Zadig's straightforward functionality.


You can install USB drivers with a single click. Zadig provides you with all the drivers you need, so you don't have to search on the Internet. The application is free and it works straight out of the box.


There are no obvious drawbacks to mention.
