I cant seem to find drivers for my new Nano every, i tried fresh installs of IDE 1.8.9 and Beta 1.9.0, but i cant seem to get it to install the drivers for Nano every (it just doesn't have it) and i also cant find any drivers for it through google.

Did you install Arduino megaAVR Boards?

Did you install Arduino megaAVR Boards?
Yes i did, i successfully see Arduino nano every in my boards in the Arduino IDE. 

the Arduino nano every is recognized by my PC, it shows up as such in my device manager. but it has a yellow exclamation mark and windows says it cannot find drivers for it.  i have attempted to remove the drivers and automatically install them again, and it did not work.

i have tried to manually look for drivers in the Arduino 1.8.9 drivers directory (ive cheeked every INF File), i have also checked the 1.9.0 drivers directory.

OK, I was hoping that might magically make it work. Arduino megaAVR Boards comes with its own drivers:
https://github.com/arduino/ArduinoCore-megaavr/tree/master/drivers
but I also noticed that the .inf file doesn't have anything for the Nano Every and I couldn't find anything for it anywhere else.

Unfortunately, I don't have one of these boards yet so I don't have any experience getting the drivers working.

The INF file in those drivers you linked had only 1 thing labeled as mEDBG Virtual com port and it worked.

I am now having issues using the MCUFRIEND_kbv library for my LCD, but i'm guessing this issue belongs in a different section of the forum?  or could it be tied to the nano v3--> nano every transition because the pins are not identical?

That's great! I'm very glad to hear you got the drivers situation resolved.

I think you should start a new thread for the new problem, since it's unrelated to the "Nano every missing drivers" title of this thread. That will ensure that you get the help of the people knowledgeable on the subject. I'll be sure to take a look at it.

I made a new thread for the issue with my display as you suggested.

Thanks for the help.

You can copy the new files or wait for the new core revision.

@PaoloP

The revision was pushed already Please see this thread

Bob.
It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

PaoloP

No. Nano 33 use a different package: Arduino SAMD Boards.
Nano Every usa Arduino megaAVR Boards package.
"Arduino SAMD Boards" package is at version 1.8.3 while "Arduino megaAVR Boards" package is at version 1.8.2.

I bought a Nano Every a few months ago but I can not do anything with that board due to issues with the driver.

Arduino megaAVR Boards extension is installed
Other boards with Atmel of ESP works fine (UART: FTDI, Atmel, CH340, 2104).
I'm using a Windows 7 system.

Although there are regular updates the Every is still a useless board for me as long as the driver is not working as it should.
Any ideas how to get this board Every board operational (and keeping Win-7) are welcome.

You passed this topic on your way to posting your issue.

Did that not help at all.

All the USB information is a little overkill.

More important are factors such as user level in win 7?, additional security being used ?, IDE version ?,

Bob.

@ballscrewbob,

Dear Bob,

Thans for the quick reply.

I agree, a lot of overhead in the USB View list dump but it shows there is a driver for Nana Evey installed.
On the page you mentioned I only see three broken image links.

My environment for development is:
Win-7 - All rights (Admin)
IDE : 
 - Arduino 1.8.10,  AVR Boards 1.8.2,  MegaAVR Boards 1.8.5
 - Sloeber
 - PlatformIO

Most of the work is done with Sloeber and PIO
Arduinio IDE is mainly used to verify that an issue is not related to Sloeber or PIO.

Please provide a detailed description of what the issues are.

@ballscrewbob the reason why those images are broken for @Janhgm is because you have them attached to a topic in the Community > test board, which is not publicly accessible:
https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=647944
Since we have access to that board, the images show up fine when we view the "Install the board cores and drivers" topic, but for a regular user or someone not logged in they are broken.
