Arduino Micro driver on XP

by HFarms on Tue Oct 29, 2013 9:26 pm

I'm having trouble getting my new Micro recognized under XP 32 bit SP3.
The "new hardware wizard" is looking for ATm32U4DFU. I've given it the Old_Arduino_Drivers unzipped from Arduino IDE v1.0.5, but it still isn't happy.
My Unos work fine.
Any ideas? [aside from "upgrade your OS" :)]
My only idea right now is that maybe the USB PID has changed. From the Arduino Micro.inf file...
%DESCRIPTION%=DriverInstall, USB\VID_2341&PID_0037
%DESCRIPTION%=DriverInstall, USB\VID_2341&PID_8037&MI_00

Thanks,
Kent

Use the leonardo drivers, not the uno.

Leonardo driver doesn't work, either.

Try removing the usb devices, uninstall the IDE, reboot, install the IDE, then plug in the micro. See what happens.

I did the uninstall/reinstall and same problem. I've also installed the Arduino 1.0.5 IDE on a Windows 7 machine that had never had it and still have the same problem.

What does the Micro appear as in Device Manager?
