I have a STM32-F4 discovery board, specific model # STM32F407 VGT6. Having connected it to my computer via USB I have successfully run its test programs. Additionally I have successfully built a test program that came with IAR EWARM 6.5.

However, I notice that IAR, the ST Link Utility, etc. have been unable to download programs to the board. I noticed that the Devices & Printers section of the Control Panel recognizes my board but has a yellow icon under the device icon, with status "needs troubleshooting" and "driver is unavailable", despite having installed the USB driver and the STLINK driver showing up in the programs & features section of control panel.

(On edit) Eventually I got my board to work on my old computer that had windows 7.
