Been considering migrating to arduino fro pic for some time. Plucked up courage, ordered uno and mega 2560 for Christmas. Beginning to think I’ve made a mistake. First thing I try to do (install drivers) has failed. I followed the official instructions anf have searched the web and this forum and tried out pretty well all of the solutions without success. I know the boards are OK because they work on an old laptop with good old XP. It doesn’t seem to me to auger well for the system if even the install wont work. Have I reaaly just got to chuck thes things away. As you can probably tell I am very frustrated after hours of fruitless effort just to get the thing started. The message I get, incidentally when trying to install is the following :
Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.
The system cannot find the file specified.
If you know the manufacturer of your device, you can visit its website and check the support section for the driver software.
I tried looking for usbser.sys which I found in a different file to that quoted on another post and copied it to the windows system32/drivers folder. Still no result. If anyone has any helpful suggestions I would greatly appreciate it as at present \i just think I may have made a huge mistake buying this stuff.
