[Solved] USBtinyISP and Vista 64 Bit - Again

by Kaktus621 on Wed May 27, 2009 2:00 pm

Hi!

I know there were some threads according the 64-Bit problem, but there was no real solution to it. Are there any new findings to the driver-issue? Here it says that you have to change some lines from "sizeof(res)" to "4" in the usbtiny.c, BUT where can I find the usbtiny.c? I assume it's the source for the driver.

Or is there maybe someone who found those sources and has the driver already compiled? Could this someone share the file? I would really appreciate it :)

Thanks in advance,
Kaktus621

i dont have vista but some people were saying its not working so well. im aiming to release a new usbtiny which takes care of this problem because, well, the vista developers should have checked that usbtiny doesnt work right before selling it! :)

Well is there any possibility to get it running? Or can I help you somehow in development of these drivers (well my programming skills according drivers equal zero, but I could beta-test them for you :-P).

I got everything working under Vista x64 but had to run a Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider (DSEO) from http://www.ngohq.com/home.php?page=File ... _cat_id=34 and also had to replace msys-1.0.dll from http://www.madwizard.org/electronics/ar ... inavrvista.

If installing WinAVR from scratch I recomend putting it in a directory other than the default Program Files (x86) as the special characters interfere with differnt parts of the compilation process.

Thanks a lot BilHerd for sharing this information! The usage of the DSEO helped and the UsbTinyISP is now recognized by avrdude.

I tried Bill's fix and still get the "can't load driver" message.

What all dlls and sys files do I need to sign?

I could not get DESO to work, Vista continued to complain that the driver could not be loaded, and occasionally it would mention the driver signing issue. I ended up having to reboot and use the F8 menu to disable driver signature enforcement. After that, I was able to load the driver.

Bills fix worked for me in Windows 7 x64 guys (Thanks dude). A key thing i'd like to mention. Go to device manager and right click the device with the unsigned driver and click on properties. In the properties panel, navigate over to the driver tab and click on driver details.

Notice the location of the .sys file(s) are shown here. If there is more than 1 .sys file, make sure to put them all through DESO to sign in order to get it working.

Good luck to all!

DSEO worked for me in Win7 Ultimate x64, but I found that it un-signs the driver now and again and I've had to re-sign the libusb0 drivers.

I found a tutorial for turning off the signed driver check that seems to fix it: http://www.killertechtips.com/2009/05/0 ... cy-editor/

<EDIT> Welp, didn't work. Weird, still get the error that it can't install the unsigned driver even though the group policy tells it to. I'll try the fix posted above.

DSEO worked for me in W7 x64 as well. It just took me a while to check which drivers the system was looking for, as it would not allow me to choose the drivers I had downloaded. Heed Coldttotouch's post and sign the drivers listed in the properties.
