TinyScreen+ Windows 7/8 Driver Installation

Windows 7/8 requires a few additional steps to install the TinyScreen+ device drivers. This is a one-time setup.

  • When you first connect the TinyScreen+ via USB to your Windows 7/8 PC it should now show a pop-up attempting to install the USB device drivers. Click Yes to accept and install if it asks.
  • Click here to download the PJRC USB-CDC driver provided by the super awesome folks at Adafruit/PJRC. Open the downloaded zip file, extract and open the exe file to install the driver.
  • After it is installed, go to Control Panel->Device Manager
  • In the Device Manager, you should see Other Devices -> ‘Unknown Device’.

  • Right click ‘Unknown Device’ and click ‘Update Driver Software’

  • Click ‘Browse my computer for driver software”.

  • On the next screen click “Let me pick from a list of device drivers..”.

  • Keep default selection “Show all devices” in next screen and click Next.

  • Wait in the next screen for a few minutes till it lists the devices.

  • Then under Manufacturer select PJRC.COM, LLC and click next.

  • Click ‘Yes’ on the warning message to install the driver.

  • The Device Driver should now be successfully installed and should show as Teensy USB Serial in the Device Manager.

  • You can now relaunch Arduino Software (IDE) and verify if TinyScreen+ shows up under Tools->Port.

If TinyScreen doesn’t show up, then please try reinstalling the drivers by following the steps from start.
