Usbtinyisp Pilote Windows 10 64-bit Fixed


Usbtinyisp Pilote Windows 10 64-bit

I tried a bunch of things (e.g., changing the voltage to 5V instead of 3.3V and vice versa, moving between an up-to-date Windows and an ancient Windows), and eventually discovered that the Burn Bootloader was actually working, but it was either not finding any MCU fuse bits or it was failing to set the ones it found (it wouldnt even open the fuse window).

Not only was the USBtinyISP program running fine, but it was also recognized as a programmer by Windows at the time. Ive noticed that most people can download drivers for USBtinyISPs, and that doesnt seem to be the case for their IDE. Perhaps if youre not running a 64-bit version of Windows it might be a little more difficult. If youre doing a lot of Arduino work, you may have to get a thumb drive with an 8GB or so free to run the Arduino IDE. The thumb drive will suffice for awhile, but you could always make another if it doesnt work out.

Hey just installed USBtinyISP in windows 8.1. I see the red LED is lit, but doesnt seem to be getting any power (tested power supply) and the last message upon startup says: Initalization error. This means the board is not receiving power. Did it work in windows 7? I need it to work in windows 8.1 x64. Thanks!

Hello, I’m having a problem booting windows 7 and installing USBasp. I have installed the USBasp, plugged the usbtinyisp into my USBcable and nothing. I booted into windows on the hard disk, allowed it to check the hardware, rebooted and installed it as normal. It states in the software that it has been installed, but says there are no drivers found, as in the video here ( If anyone could give me some guidance, it would be much appreciated.

During the installation of Arduino 1.0.1, I was getting a message that the driver for the USBtinyISP could not be found. I had done the install several times and got the same error over and over. After not seeing it with the Arduino 1.0.1 build, it dawned on me that it might be a driver problem. I ran Device Manager and found that “Arduino-Software, Inc.” was a yellow exclamation mark in the “Identifier” section. I selected the device and selected “Update Driver Software.” A dialog box appeared saying that the driver was not complete. I clicked the button that said “Update Driver Software,” and then was able to click “Install.” When the update was finished, I was able to copy the attached archive to my Arduino 1.0.1 directory and then create and upload sketches like normal. As a troubleshooting step, I tried the driver install for the USBasp from SparkFun directly, but no luck. The solution was in the note at the bottom of the USBtinyISP readme file: “If you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, please use the Driver Install Assistant and follow instructions for SP1 (or later) from this link:” I got the driver from this link. Direct from, not SparkFun or ChipKit.
I’ve been trying to figure out how to get the COM port assigned to this device for weeks now. I’ve tried selecting an alternate COM port, but it’s still the same error. I’ve tried entering the device on the command line, and I’ve tried running it on an old Windows 7 PC, to no avail.
