Hi,

I just build and loaded the shell app found in the MKW2xD_ConnSw_1.0.1 package. The load went fine, BUT when I attempted to find a corresponding COM port, I could not.

Instead, I found MCU VIRTUAL COM DEMO listed under the "Other devices":

When I fetch the properties, I get:

properties-for-MCU-Virtual.PNG

I can find no such suitable driver so far

Help!

Thanks,

George Wicks

If this didn't work you, you can use the drivers that are located in the path C:\nxp\MKW2xD_ConnSw_1.0.1\middleware\usb_1.1.0\example\usb_device_cdc_vcom\inf, Just copy the path in the browse for driver software on your computer instead of click in let me pick...

Please try this and tell me how it goes.
Have a great day,

Hi,

I have the imx6ull processor and I'm having problems with Windows CDC driver for Windows 7 and Windows 8. Can you provide your driver for test if it works? I have the original one that Linux give but I have problems with certificates on Windows 8 and Windows 10.

Thanks

Hi,

I found this post, I am trying the suggested steps but I get an error :

A service installation section in the INF is invalid.

I am trying install on Windows 7 64 bit.

Anyone who had the same problem and knows how to fix it?

This may be a fix, but the files mentioned are not available to me.  There must be something installed from NXP that has these files that I don't have.
