    Beginner with USBUART

    chai.yang

       I need to implement the USBUART functionality for a project of mine and since I've never used it before I decided to try the USB_UART example project provided with psoc creator. I'm not sure what the program is supposed to be doing but I can not figure out step 4:

         

      4. Install drivers for the device manually. In Windows 7, open "Device Manager", find the "USBUART" device in the "Other devices" branch of the tree. Open the context menu and select "Update Driver Software". Browse to USBUART_1_cdc.inf file from the project generated sources directory as a driver.

         

      There is no branch labeled "Other devices" when psoc is plugged in so I am not sure where to update the drivers. I've also read about these drivers here http://www.cypress.com/?app=forum&id=2232&rID=89607 but I don't quite understand it. Where can I get those drivers and what does he mean when he says "the device is bound to CypressUsbAndBus.inf file"? Any help will be appreciated

         

      Thanks!
