Any idea how to get the driver working with W8 Prof 64b?!
I had JTAG working with W7, but I recently upgraded
to W8. As the system found no appropriate driver I was 'clever' enough ;-) to find the site http://www.ftdichip.com/Products/ICs/FT2232D.htm
myself and download the file "CDM 2.08.28 WHQL Certified.zip
" and tried to apply the drivers from this source.
But again no luck. While further digging into the issue I noticed that the *.inf files in the "CDM 2.04.16_SHEEVA
" package also list the devicesftdibus.inf:
USB\VID_9E88&PID_9E8F.DeviceDesc="USB Serial Converter"
USB\VID_9E88&PID_9E8F&MI_00.DeviceDesc="USB Serial Converter A"
USB\VID_9E88&PID_9E8F&MI_01.DeviceDesc="USB Serial Converter B"ftdiport.inf:
VID_9E88&PID_9E8F.DeviceDesc="USB Serial Port"
Thinking being 'clever' again I simply added those entries to the *.inf files of the "CDM 2.08.28 WHQL Certified.zip
I seem to be one step further as W8 start the installation of the drivers, now, but it stops a bit later with a message complaining that the hash values of the files don't match (as they may have been [illegally] modified -and the may be right here ;-)
Unfortunately I'm stuck at this point. Any idea who to correct this or how to get hold of a working driver which supports the SheevaPlug and Windows 8!?!
