Help: my USB connection doesn't recognize Electron

Can you help me with this problem? I am a newbie.

My USB doesn’t recognize the Electron when it is connected to it. Please see the image. And, when I flash the LED program, prompted with “serial: no serial port identified.”

You need to install the drivers.

I having trouble downloading the driver. I’ve attached a screenshot of the commands used. Can you take a look at the shot and let me know if I am doing anything wrong? USB was connected and the particle electron was blinking blue.

particle setup expects the system drivers to be installed already, it doesn’t install anything on your computer.

To install the drivers you should use the CLI installer

Or you use these

As documented here (found via doc-search “Windows drivers”)

Once the drivers are installed you should see the device in DevMgr as COM port device.
