    USBUART Driver Issues

    dan.siewers

      I'm trying to use the USBUART with Win 7 - 64 bit.

         

       I've spent allot of time trolling through this forum to find an answer to this but so far no luck.
      PSOC creator used to generate an .inf  file after compiling the project but no more.
      The datasheet doesn't really tell you where to find the driver so somehow I figured out that it can be found in the Cypress Suite USB 3.4.7 folders. The docs over there tell me that the driver for Vista 64 is Win 7 64 compatible. I cruised over to the "Drivers" folder and saw that there are drivers for "w2k", "wxp" and something called "wlh" but no "Vista" or "Win 7" folders.
      I figured that the "wlh" folder is my best option and so I dragged the files over to my project folder, plugged in the correct VID/PID info and manually installed the driver via Device Manager.
      After having to reboot / F8 to tell Wiindows to ignore ditial signatures I get the dreaded "Code 10".

         

      The only thing I changed in the USBUART config was the VID/PID and told it to be self powered.
      The voltage is correct at 5V and the code is there to turn on global interrupts, start the USBUART and enumerate.

         

      I used to have this all wroking with the old USBUART when the only component available was the USBFS.

      Any suggestions?
