So I got my new starter kit today and I tried following the Tutorial-0 driver install instructions. I am running Windows XP Home SP3. From the FTDI site, I downloaded processor architecture 2.08.14 and from the commets section, I downloaded the 2.08.14 WHQL Certified setup executable. I put these all in one folder.
After I connected the Adruino board it did give me the "Windows found new hardware wizard". It only went throught the first windows of the install, after I said "Finish", a second window for the windows serial prot install never appeared. Is there a way to manually bring up the window?
So, going to the Device Manger, it does not show the virtual comport 3. I read a lot of the thread of issues people have had and I see that my Adruino is a UNO and it needs special VCP drivers? Is this that case, do I need to unistall the FTDI drivers and install UNO drivers?? How do I uninstall the FTDI drivers.
Thanks for the help, at this point I am confused as to which drivers to install and where place them on my machine.
