3.Click on Browse my computer for driver software
4.Add the path name where the file is stored(i.e Desktop in my case)
5. click Next
Everytime an error comes up "Window found your driver software but an error occurred while attempting to install it.
Did you download and unzip https://downloadmirror.intel.com/24748/eng/IntelGalileoFirmwareUpdater-1.0.4-Windows.zip https://downloadmirror.intel.com/24748/eng/IntelGalileoFirmwareUpdater-1.0.4-Windows.zip?
Yes I did
do you have java installed?
a) copy the .zip as well as the unzipped files in a directory and send the screen showing those files
b) the "system" screen (i.e the one in which the windows version is shown, memory, etc.)
c) send the sequence of screens you see from
Open device manager look for Gadget serial v2.4.Right click on it .Click Update Driver software
to the screen showing the error.
Yes Java is installed in my system:
The file is saved in C:Galileo_Driver
Then I go to Driver Manager. Right Click on the gadgetSerial v2.4 .Update Driver software
Manually browse and try adding the driver
Everytime same error pops
Thank you very much.
Everything seems to be "fine" ... except for the error...
If there is other device with the "!" in the Device Manager, specially under In Ports (COM & LPT), as shown at
https://software.intel.com/en-us/installing-drivers-and-updating-firmware-for-arduino-windows IoT - Installing drivers and updating firmware for Arduino on a system with Windows* | Intel® Software
then follow the steps for updating that "unknown device" and let me know the results.
Do not worry if there is a "! Gadget Serial..." under "Other devices" for now.
Well... then the step by step Intel documented methodology does not work in your case...
Now I remember there were some "old" threads about problems with USB ports and/or cables... try with other USB cables (usually, the thicker the better...) and avoid using USB 3.0 ports.
We would like to know if you've already installed the Galileo driver. Also, if you need more assistance, please let us know, we'll happy to help you.
