Driver worked well in Win 7 until I updated to Win 10. I didn't do a clean install of Windows 10, just an upgrade from 7 to 10. Plugged in a fresh Pico and saw the red light flash. I opened up the web IDE tried the normal way to connect and it said Connect failed. I tried a restart but same thing. So I checked Device manager and noticed:
Have you tried just re-installing the drivers? I know people are using it with Windows 10 and don't have problems, so maybe the drivers got disabled in the upgrade process?
@Gordon Strange, everything seems to be functioning correctly now. My USB cable is most likely not functioning properly.
@Gordon I spoke to soon. I switch cables and USB ports and I am still having the same issue. This will also be my second time reinstalling the drivers.
Oops I forgot one crucial step: Unzip the file, run the executable, and then go to C:\Program Files (x86)\STMicroelectronics\Software\Virtual comport driver in Windows Explorer and double-click either dpinst_amd64.exe for 64 bit systems, or dpinst_x86.exe for 32 bit.
Everything appears to be functioning properly again :-)
Great! glad you got it sorted - the drivers are pretty strange like that... I'm tempted to just distribute them outside the ZIP file :)
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
