Windows System 7 laptop (thinkpad). When I run the installer it tells me no mbed platform is installed. I have the mBuino attached and can see the flash drive. Do I have to wait for the official release of the mBuino as a mbed platform for the driver to install?
I still can’t install the virtual serial port driver. I have the mBuino plugged in. I have tried it with a running example of virtual serial communications and I have tried it with the mBuino attached as a usb storage device.
The installer is give me the same message that it can’t find a mbed device.
I unzipped the file and names it serial.inf. From the control panel I updated the driver and it changed the device to be named
Mbed Virtual Serial Port (COM3)
I can now write to the serial port from programs. I’m still a little confused because the PCserial and USBserial example programs both work. I’m not complaining, I guess I have choices. Just thought one of those were for alternate pin-outs.
But happy now. I can start to write more serious programs. Thanks again.
