Win 7 Device Driver installation

Your board should appear as a HID device in the device manager only when you switch it to bootloader mode ( the 2 on board leds alternatively blinking ). If the blink example works, your board is OK.
The board will appear as virtual com port device when you will use CDC function in Pinguino.

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.

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.

Aha. Good point. It will only be a virtual com port if the program loaded into the board is running AND it uses CDC (because that makes it open a USB link up to the host PC).

Generally, if it's in bootloader then it's a HID. Running a user program it's nothing or if that program uses CDC then it's a COM port. (On Linux, a tty port.)

RE: Win 7 Device Driver installation
Hi guys!

I install all the steps but when I connect the board, first it appears as LibUSB device and the next as unknown device.

Install LibUSB..... done
Install drivers..... done
Install IDE......... done

But when I connect, first yes and then no.

Black magic, bad curse? Huh

RE: Win 7 Device Driver installation
Have you tried to upload a program? What error does appear in the IDE (what IDE do you use?)

RE: Win 7 Device Driver installation
I think I found the problem yesterday:

I have an old bootloader version in my pinguino2550 (v2.00) and the IDE X.3 don't upload the software. I need the Vascobootloader and a previous IDE version.

I could program the new bootloader version v3.00 too, but I don't have a pic programmer now.
