Generic USB redirection feature allows redirection of arbitrary USB devices from client machines to XenDesktop virtual desktops. With this feature, the end users have the ability to interact with a wide selection of generic USB devices in their XenDesktop session as if it had been physical plugged into it. USB Driver Information The USB connected instruments require drivers for certain operating systems. USB drivers are normally supplied and installed with the software that will drive the instrument, though at times, X−Rite may update its drivers for new instruments or better compatibility with new operating systems.

The USB driver is outdated; The USB Driver is missing; Or even a corrupted driver; While you can't be so sure what the exact problem is there are solutions you can adopt to fix the issue once and for all. Read on to find quick fixes to resolve the problem. 1# Fix Prolific USB to Serial Driver not Working Solution: Roll your Prolific USB to.

). I would NOT put them in Program Files, since spaces in directory or file names and command line environments are a very bad mix, and will cause you endless problems. The archive will create a top level directory Argyll_VX.X.X, where X.X.X is the version number, and the executables will be in Argyll_VX.X.Xbin.

Making the tools accessible:

You should also configure your %PATH% environment variable to give access to the executables from your command line environment.
For Windows 8, 8.1 & 10, look in
Desktop -> Settings -> Control Panel -> System And Security -> System -> Advanced System Settings -> Environment Variables
For Windows 7, look in
Start Menu -> Control Panel -> System And Security -> System -> Change Settings -> Advanced -> Environment Variables
For Vista, look in
Start Menu -> Control Panel -> System And Maintenance -> System -> Change Settings -> Advanced -> Environment Variables
For XP and 2000 look in
Start->Settings->Control Panel->System->Advanced->Environment Variables
For NT 4 look in
Start->Settings->Control Panel->System->Environment
You want to add the directory you've chosen to your %PATH%, which is a System Variable. Normally you would add this to the end of the current setting, separated by a ';'.
So if the current value of PATH is '%SystemRoot%system32;%SystemRoot%' and you unpacked Argyll version 1.8.0 in d:bin, then you would modify PATH to be '%SystemRoot%system32;%SystemRoot%;d:binArgyll_V1.8.0bin', - i.e. you append the path to the Argyll binaries to your PATH, separated by the ';' character. The change will take effect when you start a new command shell, which you start from Start Menu->Accessories->Command Prompt, or Start Menu->Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt. You can check that the environment variable has been set by running the command 'echo %PATH%' in the command shell.
The .zip file also contains several useful reference files (such as scanner chart recognition templates, sample illumination spectrum etc.) in the ref sub-directory, all the current documentation in a doc sub-directory, and instrument USB drivers in the usb directory.
NOTE: Vista 64/Windows 7, 8,8.1 & 10 64 bit and Beep prompt: Microsoft (in its infinite wisdom) has removed the built in speaker driver, and now relies on systems having a sound card and speakers's installed and turned on to hear system beeps. So if you're wondering where the beeps have gone when using chartread, now you know.
NOTE: Microsofts generic VGA Driver does not appear to support setting the display VideoLUTs. You will need to install a display driver for your specific display hardware to enable this. Note that it is possible in many cases to use Windows 7 video drivers on Windows 8 systems.

NOTE that if you wish to use Argyll tools (dispwin) to control display calibration, that you will have to disable any other display calibration loader programs.
There are other programs that will interfere with calibration loading, such as igfxpers.exe that gets installed with nVidia 'Optimus' technology.
You may have to disable both the igfx tray module (c:windowssystem32igfxtray.exe) and the igfxpph Module (c:windowssystem32igfxpph.dll) in addition to the persistence Module (c:windowssystem32igfxpers.exe).
A good tool for this is AutoRuns. Note that the igfxpph module may exist in several locations and you have to disable all of them. Reboot after changing settings.

Serial Instruments:

If you are using a serial connected instrument, then there is nothing special to do to enable this.

USB Instruments:

If you are using a USB connected instrument, then suitable USB system drivers may need to be installed.

Note that the Huey, i1 Display Pro, ColorMunki Display and ColorHug colorimeter appears as an HID (USB Human Interface Device Class) device, and hence will be assigned to the default MSWindows HID driver. You therefore don't need to install an Argyll usb system driver for these instruments, although it is possible to select the libusb0.sys driver as an alternative to the default HID driver.
Drivers If you are using the JETI specbos 1211, 1201, 1511, 1501 and the Klien K10A then you may need to install the FTDI Virtual COM Port Drivers (VCP), if they are not already on your system. You may have to update to the latest FTDI driver to work with the FTDI FT231XS chip that the JETI specbos 1511, 1501 use.

Fresh Install of Instrument USB driver:
If you currently don't have any applications that talk to your instrument using USB, then it is relatively simple to use the drivers provided with Argyll, since you don't have to deal with the instrument already having an assigned driver.
Windows 8/8.1/10 does not automatically pop up a 'New Hardware' dialog, so you will have to open the Device Manager manually, and you will also have to temporarily disable UBS driver .inf signature enforcement.
Please NOTE that on some versions of Windows 10, you may have to temporarily disable secure boot in your UEFI BIOS to be able to Disable Driver Signature Enforcement.

2# Fix Prolific USB to Serial Driver 'Coder 10'

Driver issues reveal themselves in so many ways or through messages such as

  • This device will not start (Code 10)
  • There is no driver installed in this device
  • The driver was not successfully installed

A code 10 error may arise because the chip you are using is not an original one. If you are using a fake, the manufacturer has a way of disabling it due to copy write infringement and the copy write takes effect once you download a recent update. To protect your PC from getting this code, you will have to make sure that your Windows 10 never updates a driver without approval. Updates come in the form of 64 bit and 32-bit drivers. Below we will show you how to work your way around the problem.

Window 64 bit Fix

To fix Windows 64 bit OS including Prolific USB to Serial Adapter, follow through these steps.

  • Download 'PL2303_64bit_Installer.exe and Save
  • Remove every USB to Serial adapter from your PC and double click the 'PL2303_64bit_installer.exe
  • Follow the prompt by plugging in one USB to Serial adapter the click on Continue
  • Reboot your PC to get Windows up and running

If you have followed these process through and you still see the same error go to your device manager

  • Open the control panel and navigate to Device Manager
  • From your control panel navigate to the System category and click the Hardware tab
  • Scroll to the LPT/COM port and double click Prolific USB to Serial Comm Port
  • Click Drivers in the Properties section
  • The Driver you choose should read '3.3.2.102 with an appropriate date attached
  • If the date is wrong then it means the wrong driver was installed
  • Unplug the Serial adapter and run the steps again to install the correct driver

Window 32-bit

For Windows 32-bit OS systems follow these steps

  • You will have to download the 'PL-2303_Driver_Installer.exe and save from Microsoft download link
  • Run the program and eradicate the driver if you can
  • Run the installer once more to install a correct driver

To Troubleshoot for error if your device still does not work

  • Go to Control panel, enter System to access your Device Manager
  • Scroll down to the LPT/ COM port then double click Prolific USB to Serial Comm Port
  • Click Driver in the Windows Properties section
  • The driver must be numbered as '2.0.2.8' and dates accordingly

If the driver was not installed, remove the Serial adapter then run 'PL2303_Driver_Installer.exe' again. Follow directions in Device Manager to download the correct driver

The three solutions listed in this article have proven to be quite helpful in fixing a Prolific USB to Serial driver not working on Windows 10. They may appear confusing at first but if you follow each step in detail you can resolve the issue.
