Is it possible to rename a moniker for a device?
#1
Is it possible to rename a moniker for a device? I want to change its name but dont want to have to reconfigure it from scratch

No, the moniker is a fundamental thing. So you have to remove it and re-add it under the new moniker. That won't find the old configuration. If the configuration is an external file (and sometimes it is) you could rename the config file to match the new moniker. Otherwise you are kind of out of luck on that one.

Can that be added as an option. I too have needed this feature a few times and it is a PITA to delete and re-add a driver. Yes, there will be issues with anything referencing the drivers moniker - but you will have that anyway.

If the driver uses an external file then the user needs to deal with that in what ever way necessary after the rename
