USB to Serial device finally working on Windows 10 IoT / RP2

A few weeks ago the RTM version of Windows 10 IoT Core was released. Oh, was I filled with joy… only to find out that my serial to rs232 converter wasn’t supported. Officially we should wait for the manufacturer to release windows 10 drivers. Unless you buy the only USB to serial which is supported.

I¬†already knew that FTDI had some windows 8.1 RT ARM drivers available which theoretically should work. I managed to install the drivers, but my device wasn’t recognized. So far for me…

This weekend I was surprised by¬†teasing image showing a working FTDI USB to serial device. A good friend of mine didn’t give up and managed to get it working. For the full sample, see this github page.
