So, I wanted to use an arduino leonardo on my pc to create shortcuts, etc. The easiest way i found was to make my arduino as if it was an xbox controller so i could create shortcuts and macros easily via inputmapper. So i made my sketch and everything was fine and now it is recognized as a xbox 360 controller on windows. I tried to upload a modified version to fix some little mistakes i made but there was a problem : i could not see the arduino leonardo port in the IDE, only the COM 1. So now i can’t upload anymore to it because it is detected as a xbox controller but not an arduino leonardo. I use XInput and i read that i do not need to select a port if i uploaded a sketch (because obviously it is not detected anymore as an arduino) and only leave it blank. The problem here is that whenever i launch the IDE it sets autommatically on COM 1…
I searched all day on the internet for a solution but i cant find one, i need your help.
Here’s the link of the arduino leonardo i bought (it is not actually one but it says to choose this type of board in the IDE for it)
In the attach there is a screenshot of the error it gives me if i try to upload on port COM 1
I tried with another one (buy them in pack of 3) and even changed the cable but it doesn’t change anything and i also tried resetting it when it was uploading.
Thanks for your help !
