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

Thanks, driver installed with no error.

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?

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

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?

To end a discussion in a wrong thread:

DigiCDC is an ugly hack, as CDC devices are specified as Hi-Speed USB (12 MHz clock). The Digispark USB emulation is Lo-Speed USB (1.5 MHz clock). It worked anyway on Windows XP and on older Linux kernels, but with newer versions of Windows and Linux it does not work anymore.

You may still use DigiUSB, but it requires that you write some C, C++ or Python software for the PC side.

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:
