Windows 10 cp210x driver??
Does anyone know where I would be able to find the cp210x USB to UART driver compatible with windows 10? Any leads would be extremely appreciated, as I've turned the internet upside down looking for one. Am I going to have to revert to windows 8 in order to be able to use my Onion? Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays!!
Hi @Chris-Chibato We've been looking for it too :( I've sent Silicon Labs an email requesting it as well. But they haven't responded yet... I think in the mean time the only way might be to set up a linux virtual machine to connect to the Omega via
@Boken-Lin It's all good! I'm really just happy I got some confirmation on what the problem was lol i can't tell you how long it took me to realize it was actually a compatibility issue. I'm fine with a little waiting; we're not the only ones putting a little pressure on the folks at Windows based on the forums I've been reading haha
@Chris-Chibato, @Boken-Lin - Try this driver. Beta, but its been working ok for me on Win10 Pro

If you have issues with it make sure you're using a data cable (ie: can you connect your phone to your computer with it).
You may need to Add the device manually to the Device Manager. As ports do not show up in the list in Windows 10, you'll go to Action>Add Legacy Hardware>Install Manually from a List>Ports (COM & LPT)>Manufacturer = Silicon Labs, Model = Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge.
Thereafter it should install, and display the COM Port in the Device Manager, which you can use for Putty. If it displays a COM port, but shows as a broken device, check your cable.
