I have recently gotten my first Arduino (Micro) and I have been having a lot of trouble setting it up. I recently installed the most recent version of the Arduino IDE (1.6.12), but I am having issues getting my computer to read the Arduino when it is plugged in.
I would expect some kind of pop up indicating that something have been plugged into the USB port but there is no notification, and when I open my computer's device manager, there is nothing that indicates an Arduino. In fact, there are not even options for Ports or other devices when the Arduino is plugged into my computer. I have also tried to go down the route of 'Add Legacy Hardware' but I got an error code (Code 10 specifically) and then when I went into the IDE the 'Port' option under tools is greyed out and I cannot change it.
Is there a chance that I need to install any specific drivers or is there something else that I need to do? I have already gone through the troubleshooting page which directed me to the FTDI website where I downloaded two different drivers (neither of which helped the situation). I also do not believe it is an issue with the actual Arduino board itself or the cord as the green LED on the top of the board turns on when I plug it in, along with a blue light underneath the board.
Thank you guys in advance for all of your help.
