Possible bug with serial monitor in Windows 8.1

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, today I made a simple sketch to show the measured values of a sensor in the serial monitor, but it doesn't seem to work with Energia 0101E0010 and Windows 8.1. 


I tried the same sketch in another computer with Windows 7 and it was working properly, displaying the values captured with the sensor. So it seems that there is a bug with the serial monitor in Windows 8.

Try installing this v6.7.1 driver for the USB to serial IC (TUSB3410) : http://e2e.ti.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/communityserver-discussions-components-files/130/5504.TI_5F00_WDF_5F00_USBUART_5F00_SINGLE_5F00_DRIVER_5F00_V6.7.1_5F00_Win8_5F00_Installer_5F00_WHQL.zip


I find if I toggle between 115200 and 9600 bps, maybe requiring a board reset or two, it does work. It's been the most reliable driver version I've seen for Windows 8/8.1
