I have downloaded from your site and installed CP210x Universal Windows Driver. After several attempts and many hours of research I am not able to get this driver to work.
The Completing the Device Driver Installation Wizard shows: Driver Name-Silicon Labs. Status: Ready to use.
The Add Hardware shows: Manufacturer-Silicon Labs, Model-Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge
The Completing the add Hardware Wizard states: This device cannot start Code 10
I have spent 8 to 10 hours researching trying to resolve this issue without a resolution. I have found many comments that your driver does not work on Windows 10. My need is to connect this computer to an ICom7100 ham radio. I have spoken to them and they recommended that I use the driver that you provide.
Please help me find an answer to this issue.
Thanks in advance.
you may take a look if below KBA help or not:
It appears that you are overlooking the fact that your driver is not working with Windows 10! Please help me get YOUR driver working with Windows 10 first.
Thanks in advance.
Mike, it appears that the CP210x device driver is installing properly. I assume when you refer to the driver from our site you are referring to the Universal VCP driver located here - https://www.silabs.com/products/development-tools/software/usb-to-uart-bridge-vcp-drivers
As Denver mentions in the KB article he linked, it's hard for us to help when we are not the end product's manufacturer. There is a lot of customization that can be done with our device, and we don't know specifically how our device is being utilized.
Is our device internal to the product you are using? If not, can you tell us which of our devices you are using with the end product? Can you provide the steps you are taking for your installation? i.e. -
Do you know if our device is being powered via USB or through the end-product? Are you powering the end-product separately for the latter? Are there any LEDs or indicators that the end-product and our device are both receiving power?
Mike, can you attach the setupapi.dev.log log file from your computer, please? Assuming you've installed Windows 10 to the default disk and location you'll find it under C:\Windows\INF\ It is a text file, it contains time-stamped log entries from Windows as it associates drivers with devices, from oldest to newest. If you can attach it, tell us the VID/PID of your device (or, tell us it's the default if those are not changed), and the time at which you attempted the install. Better, disconnect the device, re-connect it, take a note of the time you did that and look a the last entries in that file. That's a good place to star to help us help you.
