Issue


Im using a Bluestork USB/Serial Adapter to connect my weather station to my Window 7 x64 PC.
  • Brand Converter: Bluestork
  • Model: USB To SERIAL RS-232 DB9 6

I managed to get me the driver is installed correctly except that when I go into the device manager there is an exclamation point next to the USB to Serial Controller and upon right-clicking on it, the following error messae is displayed:
This device can not start. (Code 10)

Solution

  • Download this driver and unzip it.
  • Then go into the device manager, make a right-click the device in question.
  • Update the driver
  • Select install from a list or specific location
  • Go to your unzipped folder and select the. inf file.
  • Once the driver installed, reboot your PC and try again.
