Win 7 driver again

RE: Win 7 driver again
Good progress!

I know zadig works (I've actually used it on Win7 32bit for libusb), but can't be sure it is what you want. I would try it instead of all that funny renaming stuff but there again I'm on Linux LOL

RE: Win 7 driver again
Hello Kriss,
I read your PM yesterday.
I replied in the troubleshooting forum because I did not succeed to attach my screen captures.
To reply to your new question relating to the libusb0 files :
Yesterday investigating problems between Python and libusb/Pinguino I was very surprised to find in Windows\System32 :
libusb0.dll (75ko) and drivers\libusb0.sys (52ko), both found in folder libusb-win32-bin-\amd64

and in Windows\SysWOW64:
libusb0.dll (75ko), the same as above and drivers\ibusb0.sys (47ko), found in folder libusb-win32-bin-\x86.

I tried to install the x86 elements in System32 and the amd64 ones in SysWOW64 and it was a real catastrophe : a part of my usb devices, ports LPT1 and COM, a USB hub controller did not work at all.

Coming back at the previous installation all became normal. Now I stop to experiment !!!

Bye bye

RE: Win 7 driver again
Hehe here's the point where I am (is it english ?)

I used Zadig, to change driver from usbser to WinUsb32. My COM4 virtual port wen t down, and The various libusb tests still failed.

I unnistalled, and finally had a COM5 to reappear, but still no winusb-32 working

Tried to desinstall reinstall winusb (btw not so sure how to do that ? there would be 3 files ? according to the readme ... 2 libusb0.dll, 1usb0.sys) no sure if reboot needed.

After various tries COM5 disappeared (went down so I uninstalled it)

Then came .. COM6 lol

A terminal on COM6 works, but winusb32 seems weird . after reinstalling Libusb32 it MAY be OK, but I can't be sure atm it is.
the Test (Win) program from libusb32 seems to work and says :

DLL version:
Driver version:

BUT the sample program that I use to read the usb bus (which just reads the buss just like the printf sample writes on the bus, very simple) doesnt read a thing...

What can I use prove winusb works (to read usb cdc data) (product vendor 4D8 product ID 0A)

Looks to be working.

Just use libusb APIs, if that's what you want, I suppose.

RE: Win 7 driver again

My libusb 1.2.6 works fine I can prove it !

My c# code from winusbDotnet says :
UsbEndpointReader reader = MyUsbDevice.OpenEndpointReader(ReadEndpointID.Ep01);
ReadEndpointID.Ep01 is an enumeration that starts at 129 (and goes to 143 (ep15))

That 129 rang(rung ? forgot my irregular verbs damnit) a bell to me : isnt 128 80h ? then 129 would be 81H ... didn't I read 81H somewhere ? I did ! bEndpointAddress: 81h in the usb driver text posted before...
But wait I can see 81H(which doesn't work) but also 82H in the text ... lets try with 82H and put Ep02 instead of Ep01 ...  and BAM ! It works !

So atm, I'm able to talk with my pinguino board from c#(visual studio), (at least to read but I guess I'll be able to write too...), which opens me the capacity to send GCode to drive a CNC... (that's my future story Wink

Again thanks a ton for your help.

Well done for being so persistent.
