For every device driver, the following information is displayed:
Driver Name, Display Name, Description, Startup Type, Driver type, Driver Group, Filename, File Size, Modified/Created Time of the driver file,
and version information of the driver file.
If the driver is currently running on Windows kernel, the following information is also displayed:
Base Memory Address, End Address, Memory Size, and Load Count.
This utility works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows 2000 and up to Windows 10.
On 64-bit systems, you must use the 64-bit version of InstalledDriversList.

Meaning of green/yellow/red icons
- Green Icon - The driver is running on Windows kernel.
- Yellow Icon - The driver is not running on Windows kernel.
- Red Icon - The driver is not running on Windows kernel, but it should be loaded automatically when Windows starts.
When you see a red icon, it's possible that something is wrong with the driver. Be aware that on Windows 8, there are 2 drivers of the operating system that are normally displayed with red icon.

the name of the column, like "Display Name" and "Driver Name".
You can specify the '~' prefix character (e.g: "~Visit Time") if you want to sort in descending order.
You can put multiple /sort in the command-line if you want to sort by multiple columns.
