Title: Help with Windows 10 driver install ?
Post by: JonRussell on June 27, 2016, 11:37:39 am
Hi,

I cant seem to install the drivers with Windows 10.

I am running Windows 10, 1511, Build 10586.420

I downloaded the DigiSpark drivers from https://github.com/digistump/DigistumpArduino/releases/download/1.6.7/Digistump.Drivers.zip

Ran "Install Drivers.exe"

But on the final screen I get "Digistump LLC (usbser) Ports (08/16/2014 1.1.0.0) - Install Failed"

The other three drivers in the list say "Ready to use"

Any ideas ?

Thanks.

Jon.

I have the exact same problem, did you get it fixed?  I was able to get a screenshot of the Devices and Printers Window icon that shows up for less than a second when I plug it in,  see the attachment.

There is no port created in Device Manager like for other Arduinos.

I am running Win10 64 bit professional.

Another test I made was to apply 7V btwn the Vin pin and GND pin, then insert the usb connector.  In this case windows did not respond at all, nothing happened at all when I plugged it in.  I also tried a 2nd cable and other usb ports.  I'm about to throw it in the trash.

Thanks

I still have the issue. I cant seem to get any support here, or from DigiStump ... not great, seeing as they are still happy to sell the products and take your money.

I can program them on my Win10 Laptop, but not my Win10 desktop. Cant remember doing anything differently.

But I cant get the CDC examples to run on either.

I get a driver issues again.

When the DigiSpark is in CDC mode, I get "Unknown USB Device (Invalid Configuration Descriptor)" even on a machine with working drivers for programming.

Shame.

Jon.

I'm having similar issues - on my personal Windows 10 64-bit desktop, the drivers don't install with an red cross against installing usbser. Downloading the separate driver package instead of doing it via the Arduino IDE makes no difference.

On my work laptop (Windows 7 64bit), the drivers install but the digispark is not recognised when it's connected.

Exact issue I am having. It does load "Digispark Bootloader" momentarily but then drops it due to "Digistump LLC (usbser) Ports (8/16/2014 1.1.0.0) Install failed" Status.

Same problem here. I see at least 4 different threads - NONE with any answers.

WTF digistump?? Get on the ball!

Did you got the genuine Digispark? I had this issue with rev3 (clone one) changed the diodes on these and then they worked.

Try going into windows boot options and changing "Install unsigned drivers" option there. Google for detailed instructions.

Enabling unsigned drivers in Windows 10 will get you only a little bit farther.  The driver installs, but then Windows gives the BSOD when you plug in the DigiSpark.

Same problem here.  I bought the sparks from Digistump.  Windows 10 does not recognize them when in CDC mode.   :(

Please try the updated drivers now here: https://github.com/digistump/DigistumpArduino/releases/download/1.6.7/Digistump.Drivers.zip

Drivers on WIN 10 PRO

Have tried the updated drivers, as suggested by digistump, and driver now installs with no error  :)

However, the Arduino IDE still cant see the digispark  :(

Like other posters, I have sucessfully loaded sketches using my laptop running Win 10 Home.

The IDE on the home machine is slightly earlier than that on the Pro machine, could this be the issue?

So near, yet so far :'(

OK I can now report that running 1.6.5 on a USB drive as a portable device in WIN 10 PRO makes no difference (driver still can't see the Digispark). Put the same drive on a WIN 10 Home laptop and it works fine.

Is there anyone out there who has managed to program a Digispark using any version of the Arduino IDE under WIN 10 PRO?

Thanks, driver installed with no error.

Mine is W10 PRO and no problem here, but DigiCDC examples don't work for me.

I'm using Arduino IDE 1.6.12.

Hi,

Is there a solution to DigiSpark being using with DigiCDC in Windows 10?

I've installed the drivers as well as the latest Arduino. I can run various examples but DigiCDC examples don't work, as Windows appears to be missing the appropriate driver.

Many Thanks.

Arduino 1.8.4 works fine on my Windows 10 Pro 64 bit. The DigiCDC library doesn't work, very likely due to lack of an appropriate driver for Windows 10.

You're posting in the wrong thread mate. This one is about getting the Digistump to program on Windows 10 ;)

Try looking the thread about DigiCDC on Windows 10 => http://digistump.com/board/index.php/topic,2416.msg13103/topicseen.html#msg13103 (http://digistump.com/board/index.php/topic,2416.msg13103/topicseen.html#msg13103)

Could anyone post a walkthrough on how to get a Digispark to function properly with a serial monitor in Windows 10 Pro x64? Bootloader mode works fine and I can upload simple blink programs, but that's about it. I can't actually do anything beyond that point because once the device exits bootloader mode and reboots, it always appears as "Unknown USB Device" and I cannot update the driver to anything acceptable.

Driver links in the Wiki are broken. There is no complete guide on how to do simple tasks. Has support been abandoned?

Hi, I'm new to this topic but i think i can shed some light..

On a couple of 32 bit PCs (XP and Win 7) I've found that the driver installation was being blocked because a Microsoft driver file (usbser.sys) was missing from the \WINDOWS\System32\Drivers directory.

I discovered that by checking for recent errors in the \WINDOWS\SetupAPI.log (on Win XP) or \WINDOWS\inf\SetupAPIdev.log (Win 7).

And, for more information about the AVRCDC driver, check out http://www.recursion.jp/prose/avrcdc/

Hope that helps..

An explanation from Microsoft as to why usbser.sys might be missing on your system:

Windows 8.1 and earlier versions

In Windows 8.1 and earlier versions of the operating system, Usbser.sys is not automatically loaded when a USB-to-serial device is attached to a computer. To load the driver, you need to write an INF that references the modem INF (mdmcpq.inf) and includes [Install] and [Needs] sections. Those sections are required for instantiating the service, copying inbox binaries, and registering a device interface GUID that applications require to find the device and talk to it. That INF specifies "Usbser" as a lower filter driver in a device stack.

[DDInstall.NT]
include=mdmcpq.inf
CopyFiles=FakeModemCopyFileSection 
 
[DDInstall.NT.Services]
include=mdmcpq.inf
AddService=usbser, 0x00000000, LowerFilter_Service_Inst 
 
[DDInstall.NT.HW]
include=mdmcpq.inf
AddReg=LowerFilterAddReg

DigiCDC works under Windows 10 - it requires only LowCDC-Win10x64-1.0.1.6.zip drivers from the LowCDC https://github.com/protaskin/LowCDC-Win10x64/issues/2 and a Option Two from https://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-so-that-you-can-install-unsigned-drivers/

Below you can see how DigiCDC works in my Windows 10:
