Question: My product is a HID device and once I download the firmware to the part using the CyConsole, I  lose communication with the part.  The CyConsole does not talk to the device anymore.  Why?

 

Answer:

Once a device enumerates as a HID device,  the HID drivers are loaded and you can no longer use CyConsole to talk tot he device.  The CyConsole can only talk to a device bound with CyUSB.sys or a renamed version of the same.It cannot talk to a device bound to the HID driver .  Hence you  need to use the HIDview to talk to the device.  You can download this from the  www.usb.org.(under developers tab).
