Win 7 Device Driver installation
Hi Guys

I've been using a Pinguino board under Linux for some time and have just built another DIY board (this one http://wiki.pinguino.cc/index.php/PIC18F4550_Pinguino) for use with a windows PC.

The PC is running Win 7 64-bit.

When I connect the board to the USB port it shows up in device manager as "Pinguino Project" and I have followed the instruction here http://wiki.pinguino.cc/index.php/Windows_7 including the drver download.

When I try to install the driver I get a message saying "The system cannot find the file specified".

Anyone else seeing this and have an answer??

Thank you.

Mark.

Hi Mark

If you use the X.2 version, you should find in the /extra folder a libusb installer. Did you use this installer for libusb ?

RE: Win 7 Device Driver installation
Thanks for the help!

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by X.2 version? If it is the version of libusb then I have installed 1.2.1.0 (from the installation instructions), and have also just downloaded 1.2.5.0. Neither of these zip files contain a "/extra" folder?

Where should I be looking?

Mark.

RE: Win 7 Device Driver installation
Hi Mark

Maybe it's better to uninstall libusb and install another version of Pinguino:

go to the svn area of the google code website:
http://code.google.com/p/pinguino32/downloads/list

download and install the last binary release for windows ( R240 )

in the /extra folder, you will find a setuplibusb.exe file,
install it.

then connect your pinguino to the computer,
got to the control panel/peripheral/
you should see the Pinguino project board ( with a warning )
right click on the Pinguino project and select properties,
select update driver and select the libusb folder ( program files/pinguino driver/ ),
Windows will install the driver and your pinguino should work with the r240 IDE.

RE: Win 7 Device Driver installation
Hi,

I installed Pinguino the way Jean-Pierre suggested.
- I downloaded pinguino32X r208 setup.exe from http://code.google.com/p/pinguino32/downloads/list and installed it
- Then I installed libusb (set-libusb-win7-8bit.exe) from the /extra folder .

But when I connect my pinguino and put it in the bootloader mode (green and yellow flash alternatively) the computer don't detect it.

Any idea what could be wrong?
Thank you

Sarah

RE: Win 7 Device Driver installation
Hi Sarah

Your Pinguino is a Pinguino32, it should appear in the windows control panel as a microchip device ( in the USB area ).
Do you see it ?

Did you select in Pinguino the right board ( in the perferences/board menu ).
Try to upload an example an tell us what is the result in the log area of the IDE.

RE: Win 7 Device Driver installation
Thank you Jean-Pierre,

I still don't see my board in 'Device Manager' but I can load and run the example programs. So I guess it doesn't matter.
