Thank you for suggestions.
I do not think the idea with "shell" inf would work: to register
co-installer you need to have driver registry entry, like
under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\<MediaGUID>\<Enum>
The idea with "run" key looks more promising but the package with such inf
cannot pass WQL ( MS has a rule against using "run", or "runOnce" keys in
inf). Let me know if I am wrong...

You can have RunOnce keys in your INF, but the only program you're allowed to run in rundll32.exe. Anything else forces a reboot, and Microsoft doesn't like that.

Fortunately, anything that can be done with a program can be done with rundll32.exe and a suitable DLL.
