Virtual serial port driver from old XP inf
I have a device (an Atmel development board) that is attempting to behave as a USB-to-serial adapter.
It presents itself as a Communication Device Class USB device and relies on the inbuilt USB device class drivers of Windows to operate, appearing as a virtual serial port.
It installs on XP (in the virtual machine) fine; the driver consists of a single INF describing the services and drivers it needs (included).
The problem is whenever I try and add a legacy hardware device in device manager and point the wizard to it it displays an error that it is for an x86 system and is incompatible.
Since I know theres no way Microsoft would remove any of the functionality that the original relies on, to make it work it should just be a matter of changing the correct fields - pointing to the new usb driver files, service names, etc - to be Windows 7 compatible, right?
Does anyone know how I could do this? Or point my towards an INF that does a simlar thing but is 7 compliant?
