On my machine I have 3 (run as administration) Arduino software folders.
- IDE 1.0.6 --> I use for my UNO
- IDE 1.0.6 (Teensyduino modified) --> I use for my Teensy
- IDE 1.5.8 --> I use for my Due
I have had this configuration for a very long time and no issues were seen. Whatever microcontroller I was using, I would use the corresponding IDE.
I started a new project using a Due and it was assign COM7. But for some reason my machine thinks it is a Teensy, I checked this via Device Manager. I try uninstalling the driver and scanning and still my machine thinks it is a Teensy on COM7, as well as multiple reconnects of the microcontoller. The IDE detects there is a device on COM7 but does not upload the code (for obvious reasons) and provides me a "No device found on COM7" response, although it finds it in the Tools>Port tab.
How can I override and solve this issue? Perhaps assign it to another COM port?
