Windows USB Setup

From Christian Magnusson: 

[ Assumes cygwin is installed, and OWFS sources are installed] 

 Now look at the computer’s device list. (This computer->properties->hardware->devices)

Unplug the ds9490 adapter, and insert it again… Do you get any question what to do with the device, or is it recognized by the system?

IF it’s recognized automatically (and not show up in the device-list under “LibUSB-Win32 Devices”), then you have to un-install the other driver (perhaps you have tried OWAPI from Dallas/Maxim) which allocates the device.

IF you get the question what driver do you want to use for this new detected device, then you manually point out the file ds9490.inf file on your disk… (there are two different inf-files)

IF you have installed cygwin (and you ran /usr/sbin/libusb-install) on your computer, then you should use src/scripts/usb/cygwin/ds9490.inf. It will ask you about the location of libusb0.sys and cygusb0.dll. (Probably located at C:\windows\system32\drivers\libusb0.sys and C:\windows\system32\cygusb0.dll . They are also located at C:\cygwin\lib\libusb\libusb0.sys and C:\cygwin\bin\cygusb0.dll before libusb-install is started.)

IF you don’t have Cygwin installed and have installed libusb-win32-filter-bin-, then you should use owfs/src/scripts/usb/windows/ds9490.inf. It will ask you about the location of libusb0.sys and libusb0.dll. (Probably located at C:\windows\system32\drivers\libusb0.sys and C:\windows\system32\libusb0.dll)

IF you don’t get any question what to do, then you probably find some “unknown USB device” in you hardware-device list. Right click on this device and choose “update driver” and point out the correct ds9490.inf.
