PostSubject: Watch out for windows updating the FTDI drivers from the KKL adapter   Fri Oct 24, 2014 1:16 pm

The adapter that is needed for Guzzidiag has the FTDI 232rl chip in it. That chip is so popular that the Chinese make fake ones. They work, and look the same. Now FTDI had enough and their latest driver (2.12) maybe send to you by Windows update, makes fake chips useless. So If your adapter has a fake chip, if it is used once with the 2.12 driver in windows is dead. There are ways to recover them, but for most people here is to complicated.

Ok FTDI did pull back the update from windows update:

Update: Microsoft has given us a statement:

Yesterday FTDI removed two driver versions from Windows Update. Our engineering team is engaging with FTDI to prevent these problems with their future driver updates via Windows Update.
