Hi there I just bought an Arduino Micro (adafruit version) www.adafruit.com/products/1086
I am having trouble getting it to work on my windows 8.1 laptop. When I plugged it in no drivers installed. I went to the device manager to install manually and no com ports are listed (I checked show hidden and still nothing)
When I tried loading a basic blink sketch to test if the IDE could see the micro it stalls on uploading and shows -

I checked the micro was selected in tools>boards, as well as checking the COM which is only showing COM 5 (I have nothing on COM 5). I tried opening serial monitor to have a check and it shows an error saying -
Arduino: 1.6.3 (Windows 8.1), Board: "Arduino Micro"
Error opening serial port ‘COM5’. (Port busy)
I have searched online and found a few suggestions, hitting reset button on uploads etc tried this and nothing. I have also checked my BIOS - (USB Emulation (enabled) Usb power share (disabled) an USB wake support (disabled)
Tried disabling the driver signature verification to see if it showed up in drivers and printers with no luck.
