We have previously set up an Xcarve using a gShield controller,
no issues installing arduino drivers, machine working and carving fine.
We are now trying to do a new machine setup on a new X-carve with X-controller.
However, we cannot load the Arduino drivers so the the computer recognizes the device.
We are running a PC with Windows 7, using easel on chrome, but
device manager does not recognize it as an Arduino on any of the COMs.
When the X-Controller is initially plugged into the computer (after the arduino IDE had been installed)
Windows would install the X-Controller as a “USB serial converter”.
There was no Arduino listed in the device manager.
The manufacturer was only listed as FTDI.
If we uninstall that driver, stop windows from installing drivers when the X-controller gets plugged in,
and tell windows to specifically use the arduino.inf file located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\drivers,
we are able at this point to install the X-Controller as an Arduino Uno
This looks like the old Arduino Uno and gshield except under device status it says “The device cannot start. (Code 10)”
We’ve got to the point now that we’ve run out of ways to attempt to install the Arduino properly.
We’re also not entirely sure which model Arduino is inside the X-Controller
and how it should be appearing in Device Manager.
