    Well some basics that may help

    The coms driver is not signed so win 10 will not instal it. You need to search for unsigned drivers win 10 . It's a pain to go through a load of steps to get it to bootup in a state where it will allow unsigned drivers to load.

    However that may not be the end of the problem. I never got my Amicus to bootload on my win 10 machines. You should be able to use the UMC loader instead but you miss out on some features.

    I think this may work.

    plug your Amicus18 into your P.C

    type> device
    in the "Search the web and windows" box, located on the taskbar on the left
    select> Device Manager

    you will seee
    other devices> amicus 18 serial port

    in the "Search the web and windows" box, located on the taskbar on the left
    type>
    C:\Program Files (x86)\ProtonIDE\Amicus18 USB Driver
    > and press the enter key

    right click on
    C:\Program Files (x86)\ProtonIDE\Amicus18 USB Driver\ftdiport.inf
    and select install

    select> Yes

    select> Install this driver anyway

    You should see the amicus 18 serial port
    under USB controllers

    The original Amicus18_Loader won't work with Windows 10
    Try this one

    I have not tested it has I can't find my Amicus18 board, but think it will work, please let me know.

    Hi All

    Sorry, I sort of tested this before I posted, I have an Amicus clone which uses Les's software and instructions, still can't find my genuine Amicus18 board.

    Just remembered I have my Windows 10 set to test mode, so the driver install won't work as described earlier if your setup is different, I also had problems later after rebooting the board showed up in the device manager and reported it was working, NOT I had to right click on both ftdibus.inf and ftdiport.inf and reinstalled, I have rebooted serveral times now and all seems okay.

    I ran the Delphi software for the Amicus clone it finds it okay and programs.

    The Amicus Loader file I attached in my last post, I don't think will work, typo in my Delphi search routine, I'll post I working version after I find my Amicus18 board and test it.
    If you can't wait until then send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you a version which I think will work, assuming you get the driver to install.

    Tim is correct, its a pain to use unsigned drivers on Windows 10

    Hi Stefano

    Has I said before I have Windows 10 set to test mode. (doesn't like the driver for my touch pad on my P.C)

    Did you manage to get the Amicus18 driver installed, it should show up under Ports in Device Manager?

    If you can do the above, I can send you a version of the BootLoader App which I think will work, the one I posted I don't think will.

    Yes Dave, the driver is installed without errors. (I see it in Device Manager Ports...)
    When I launch the bootloader, Windows 10 writes amicus 18 not found.

    Thanks

    Default Re: Amicus 18 on Windows 10 problem

    I have tried to install the Amicus 18 driver software on my Windows 10 PC, but have little success with the install. I have downloaded the new boot loader, following instructions below. I have not been able to check the function of this out. What I need to get the serial port working so the boot loader can run. I am not too sure what I am doing and don't want to mess up this PC, the PC shows under Device Manager the Amicus 18 serial port is there but the driver is unavailable?

    Any help would be appreciated.
