Can't install Windows XP drivers - What operation system supports the driver?

Post by Holzwurm56 » Mon Aug 28, 2017 12:27 pm

Hello,
i want to make a test with maple mini clone. I install the Arduino_STM32 folder in the hardware folder. When i want to start the install_drivers.bat i get allways the message: "wdi-simple.exe ist keine zulässige Win32-Anwendung".
I use WinXp with Sp3.
Does this support the maple mini driver?

Many thanks for every answer

Hans

Try to run the drivers install from WIN-XP-Legacy folder ---> in Arduino_STM32/drivers/win/win_xp_legacy/maple-dfu/.. and /maple-serial/..
..dfu is the driver for the bootloader
..serial is the driver for the Serial port (you will see Serial COMx in XP when the sketch prints something out via Serial.print()..)

Have you ran the BAT file with admin rights?

You could look at the original Maple IDE files etc

However, I'm not aware of anyone else on the forum who still uses Windows XP for this.

virtualbox, it's now rather infrequently.
once upon a time i upgraded a st-link on usb. alas usb devices are no longer visible.
as i'd never done it, i tried installing arduino and arduino_stm32 the other day, driver issues.
