Topic: Arduino ISP Driver (Read 4952 times) previous topic - next topic



I've bought an Arduino ISP. Know I want to intall the Drivers on my Windows 7 64bit computer. I downloaded the files from https://www.arduino.cc/en/uploads/Guide/ArduinoISP_WindowsDrivers.zip and then I want to install it in the device manager as shown in the "Getting started" instructions. Unfortunately the device manager says he doesn't find any Drivers in this folder. Then I try to install the arduinoisp.inf file directly but this also doesn't work. I have no more ideas and i didnt find anymore in google, pls help me.

P.s and sorry for my english pls I'm swiss


I assume you mean the Arduino IDE (the Arduino development system). Perhaps it is referred to as ISP in Swiss but IDE is the usual english acronym and it may be helpful to edit your Title.

And, sorry, I don't know Windows.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.


No it's all right. I mean the ISP (In system serial Programmer). And I want to install the Driver of this



AFAIK you just have to select Ardunino ISP from the tools menu, there is no special driver needed.
Ah, this is obviously some strange usage of the word 'safe' that I wasn't previously aware of. (D.Adams)


You really need a Driver otherwise it doesn't work. Only in Linux and Mac Os you don't need a Driver. I had also a Pc with linux but I can't install the newest Arduino IDE and in this one whos installed you can't choose The Arduino ISP  :'(  :smiley-confuse:



I've just found the solution of the problem. If any ones interest here the link:


Thx for your effort.

I have the same problem but the overmentioned solution not working for me.

The Windows cannot recognize the driver.
