Hello:

 

I have used a meag328pb xplained board, no problem, on windows 7.  I also have a xplained 3217 board, that doesn't show up (under tools).  Somewhat foolishly, I initially plugged it in before I ran studio 7 (not sure if that makes a difference) & it started loading drivers.  It looked like it was trying to install 4 drivers & one failed (I accidentally cleared the message, before I had a good look).  If I plug in the 328pb board,  it shows up & even shows a photo of the board in a studio tab.  The other board shows nothing in studio & not listed in tools.   However in the windows system tray, it shows I can eject it (safe to remove EDBG  CMSIS-DAP), as it shows virtual comm port10.  Thought I might "uninstall it" & try again, but not sure what needs uninstalled.  Should the 3217 board show up as a photo in studio?

 

 

This topic has a solution.

When you say tools, do you mean View/Available Tools?

it appears the driver  is working, yet nothing shows in tools.

right now i just want to builod & blink an led on the xplain board (C program)

 

 

 

all I can pick from is a bunch of stk500's on different comm ports...ans even if i pick one of thoses, then the tiny3217 isn't listed (which makes sense, since it is not isp)

 

 

 

the moment I plug in an old 328pb board, it pops right up in the studio , on a new tab

 

 

 

should the same thing happen when I plug in the 3217 xplain board

interesting...never used that feature, just used the dropdown in the programming section...anyhow, it shows nothing

 

 

however windows itself shows that it sees something out there

 

 

 

 

if I plug in my 328pb board,the 328pb pops right up in studio as shown:

Oh, the CMSIS-DAP should not be a 'other device'... 

 

Find it in Device Manager, and choose to update the driver. If it doesn't find a applicable one, then the one that should be used is Microsoft/USB Input device.

 

Could you PM me you setupapi log? (it's in C:\Windows\INF\setupapi.dev.log)

You may be onto something.I'm about to check into your suggestion...when I plug in the detectable 328pb xplain  board, it shows

 

By the way, I just installed studio on my wife's win10 laptop...it detected the 3217 board right away, I was able to chenge the fuses from 20MHZ to 16MHz and back...so the 3217 board is functional

YES!!! YES!!!  MEOLSEN, that did the trick!   When i asked to update driver, it said it found something & went off & did its thing.   For some reason, whenever something USB-oriented installs a driver on this PC , it takes about 5 minutes  (perhaps from plugging in so many things & fdti-type chips, over the years). 

 

  I will heartily nominate you for the Microchip hall of fame

fyi--it now shows
