I have a few devices, photons and a electron. ive upgraded my laptop and im having problems with the USBserial1 port showing in device mananger.
If i plug it in it is detected and installed but i only have the one USB serial device available, unless i reboot the whole computer with the device attached then it will show both ports.
But then if i flash the device it resets and goes back to showing one port.
I can also get it to show both ports again if i uninstall the USB Composite device from device manager and rescan, but this is getting painful.
Ive tried a completly different laptop and also installing the standalone particle drivers from here: (https://binaries.particle.io/drivers/windows/particle_drivers.exe) and the same thing occurs.
One thing thats the same between the 2 PCs ive tried is they both have the Intel USB 3.10 eXtensible Host Controller. My older laptop which worked flawlessly didnt have this.
Any ideas? I think ive tried every registry hack i can find and fiddling with Power options but nothing works. It seems like the second usb device starts up too slowly to be detected during the initial connection.
