I’m having a recent issue where I can’t get any photons to show up in the device manager in Windows 10. I have recently had no issues with this - I pulled the MAC address off of 18 photons last week through Putty with no problem, and have had success with both my Windows 10 machines over the last year connecting via serial.
The issue started last week, and since I have tried multiple photon devices, multiple USB cables, and multiple Windows 10 computers and USB ports and cannot get them to show up even when clicking “show hidden devices” and scanning for hardware changes (I also don’t hear the chime sound that Windows makes when you plug in a USB device). I tried updating the drivers ( v 184.108.40.206 ) which said drivers are no longer necessary to download for Win 10 and effectively erased the previous drivers from one of my computers - though I still have had no luck. Also, the photons I was working with were out of the box. I had the same issues after claiming them to my account, and flashing with 0.6.2 version firmware.
I’ve looked over a couple other threads about this issue, both of which were over a year old, but none of their solutions worked for me. Does anyone have suggestions for troubleshooting this? I can provide more information about the situation if necessary and will work on the issue more myself in the mean time.
