Just wondering if someone got UPBASP working with windows 10.

I have the device correctly installed and showing on device manager. I tried both signed and non signed drivers with the latter obviously requiring me to disable driver signature enforcement.

The arduino complains it can not find the USB ASP on both 1.06 and 1.6.9.

I recently also tried a piece of software called khazama AVR programmer which allows me to set fuses, programming speed, etc. This too cannot find the USBASP hardware with either of the drivers installed.

Any suggestions?



I cannot get my new laptop with Win10 to allow USB ports either, hoping to hear that Win 10 get fixed, until then my new laptop is useless.

Oddly enough it were the drivers, even tough everything was showing just fine.

I can confirm this trick works perfectly on Win10

+1 for this.

I just installed Win10 a couple of weeks ago, but didn't think to test my USBASP until I saw this thread.
Same problem, and the same fix worked well.

Thanks for finding the answer to a problem that I didn't know existed. :D
(I would have found out the hard way, the next time I needed to program an ATTiny.)
Please do not PM me for help. I am not a personal consultant.
And others will benefit as well if you post your question publicly on the forums.



I was a bit afraid to download and try the app at http://zadig.akeo.ie/
However, I scanned the site and exe at VirusTotal and there does seem to be a consensus that it is ok.
Just confirming that I installed it and it works great on Win10.
It's also nice that the source code is completely open and provided at github.


Zadig is great! Note that it's even recommended by the creator of the USBasp:

Although that page seems to suggest the use of the libusb-win32 driver, I have found it necessary to instead use libusbK with the latest versions of AVRDUDE used by Arduino.
