    Here is a little video showing how to "force" the driver to see the Procyon.
    The context menus are all from right-clicking the menu items, like the 1st one, right-clicking on "Computer" and left-clicking "Manage".

    This will be easy for experienced computer users. We will work on making the install easier in the future.

    Click on this link to watch the little video.

    (You will need Adobe flash installed on your computer to watch this video. Get a copy here: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/)

    Here are the steps, but the video is easier to follow:
    1. Click on the windows icon to bring up the Start Menu
    2. Right-Click on Computer
    3. Click on Manage
    4. Click on Device Manager
    5. Right-Click on Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge (COMx)
    6. Click on Update Driver Software...
    7. Click on Browse my computer for driver software on the "Update Driver Software" Window
    8. Click on Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer on the next Window
    9. Click on Have Disk... on the "Select the device driver..." Window
    10. Click on Browse... on the "Install from Disk" Window
    11. Browse to Program Files (x86)\Silabs\MCU\CP210x (or wherever the drivers were installed) on the "Locate File" Window
    12. Click on slabvcp.inf
    13. Click Ok
    14. Click Ok on the "Install from Disk" Window
    15. Click Next on the "Select the device driver..." Window
    16. Click Yes at "Update Driver Warning" message
    17. Click Close when driver update completed.

    At that point the yellow exclamation mark should be gone.

    Hi
    Tried everything on video to get editor working. I have Rev 2 console and Win 7 64bit. The driver I downloaded gives me a message that 'The Driver is not digitally signed' but if try to update it says it is the latest version (But not digitally signed). The driver is 'USB bridge for Mindplace Procyon'

    The port is COM7. COM1, and 2 are available but 3-6 are in use. In the Procyon editor, only COM 3 and CM 4 are available for setting.

    I have tried the CP210x VCP Windows and you Procyon Editor OS 2_3_00 zip files.

    Do you have any more ideas please?

    Thanks

    You're absolutely certain you have a Rev2 console? What OS version is shown on the LED display when you power it on? Does it have the rectangular ganzframe connector?

    If so, when you follow steps 1-17 from the list above, does the yellow exclamation point (!) go away from before the "USB bridge for MindPlace Procyon (COM7)" line in Device Manager?

    Hi Andy

    Thanks for fast reply.

    Had another go and it's working! Problem seemed to be around the choice in the 'Have Disk' menu - I had about 7 choices, each with a warning. Tried the first one and All OK!

    Thanks for your help on this.

    On another matter entirely, I managed to break the glasses frame and discovered that you now no longer sell the 'USB' type. Is there any way to make the later glasses work on the older console? The UK dealer can only offer me a new console and glasses which is an expensive way to go. Is there an adaptor or a bit if wiring I can do so I can just buy the new (later) glasses? The present ones work but are uncomfortable with the wad of sellotape!

    Thanks

    Chris

    You're most welcome. Glad you got it working!

    Since your follow-up question is not related to the driver issue, I've started a new thread to answer your question.
