We are currently looking at using an Arduino Mega 2560 for a project and we wanted it to show in the Windows Device Manager as something other than "Arduino Mega 2560 (COMx)". My search for a solution led me to this old thread: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=73712.0.
When I looked at the Arduino drivers that I have installed I realized that thread was before the All-In-One Arduino driver.
So, my question is, is there a way to do the same thing with the All-In-One driver?
I tried modifying the "Arduino Mega 2560" string in the arduino.inf file but when I uninstalled and then reinstalled the driver, there was no change.
Did it not work because the solution above won't work with the new arduino.inf? Is arduino.inf the correct file to modify? Is there more I have to do to make it work? Would it have worked if it was a complete new install (i.e. Windows retained some knowledge and really didn't completely reinstall)?
Finally, if I am able to get this to work as I want, does anyone know if it will adversely affect the Arduino IDE or the vMicro plug-in for Visual Studio?
