ConfigMgr: Trouble Importing Windows 8/8.1 Drivers on Server 2008 R2

Posted in CM2012ConfigMgrDriver ManagementSCCM

Recently had an issue while configuring some drivers for a client. I was unable to import any Windows 8/8.1 drivers into the site. Upon importing drivers through a script or through the console you will receive "driver is not applicable to any supported platforms"

Turns out it’s a known issue and there is a KB:

Installing the following hotfix resolved the issue for me.

After installing the hotfix and rebooting, I was able to import the Windows 8/8.1 drivers successfully.
