Hi there,

 

I use Bootloader PC Tool 1.2.2 build 227​ for flashing SerialNet on Zigbit modules. Under Windows 10 the connection combo box only listed TCP/IP. I tried with different Windows 10  PCs, but it was the same problem.

 

Under Windows 7 I had no problems, the connection combo box listed TCP/IP, Serial, ...

 

How can I get the connection combo box, which listed TCP/IP, Serial, ... under Windows 10 ?

 

Thanks!
BR

Windows 10 USB was improved with some defects corrected but did have a redesign.

What is new with Serial in Windows 10

July 29, 2015

https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/usbcoreblog/2015/07/29/what-is-new-with-serial-in-windows-10/

Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) had issues with some second party USB devices.

That may have been corrected (have not followed that), or there's a work-around (sometimes as simple as a driver uninstall and reinstall).

P.S.

There is an apparent issue for this on Windows 10 due to use of FLIP.

Hi,

 

I downloaded the full AVR 2054 package, read the Application note and all looked good. I wanted to

build a serial bootloader to my atmega2561 project.

 

When I started the Bootloader PC on my Windows 10 machine, I got the same problem as mentioned here.

Only the TCP/IP option was available.

I was not able to find any solutions in the Windows nor Atmel links provided.

If someone has found a solution to this, I really will like to know it ..

v1.2.2.214 still works.  I have the same issue in Windows 10 with 1.2.2.235 which is the latest version.
