I see multiple people having this problem but not seen an answer why or a solution: The Virtual COM Port driver (1.4) is not working for Windows 10 users. I have the same problem. I download the Driver from: STM32 Utilities - STMicroelectronics I run the installation process and also note in the contained readme.txt it says:
How to use
1- Uninstall previous versions (Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> Add or remove programs)
2- Run your "VCP_V1.4.0_Setup.exe"
3- Go to Your installation directory - Example, C:\Program Files (x86)\STMicroelectronics\Software\Virtual comport driver
4- Go to Your OS version directory ([Win7] or [Win8])
+ Then :
- Double click on dpinst_x86.exe if you are running a 32-bits OS version
- Double click on dpinst_amd64.exe if you are running a 64-bits OS version
+ Follow the instructions.
Since I have 64 bit Windows 10 I run dpinst_amd64.exe. The installation appears to work, but no "ST Microelectronics" COM port shows up in my device manager, only COM1:
I am quite certain COM1 is in no way related to my STM32F411 board. Anyone know how to get this to work?
