Ftdi Virtual Com Port Vcp Driver Download

KMX1 and KMX2 use an FTDI USB chip for the USB connection to your PC.

Usually Windows automatically installs FTDI VCP [Virtual COM Port] drivers however with some batches of FTDI chips the default windows drivers do NOT work. The latest version of FTDI VCP drivers also do NOT work and FTDI seem oblivious of that fact.
The previous version of FTDI VCP drivers does appear to work with all batches of FTDI chips.
When the FTDI drivers do not work with a particular batch of FTDI chips the Virtual Com Port will appear in Windows Device Manager however serial communications will not work

For most of these operating systems two types of driver are available: Virtual COM Port (VCP) drivers and direct (D2XX) drivers. The VCP driver emulates a standard PC serial port such that the USB device may be communicated with as a standard RS232 device. The D2XX driver allows direct access to a USB device via a DLL interface. VCP Drivers Features and Benefits. The CP210x USB to UART Bridge Virtual COM Port (VCP) drivers are required for device operation as a Virtual COM Port to facilitate host communication with CP210x products. These devices can also interface to a host using the direct access driver. These drivers are static examples detailed in Application Note.

To rectify this situation

You need to download the;

FTDI software driver for Windows x86CDM 202.08.28 WHQL 20Certified.zip
FTDI software driver for Windows x64CDM 202.08.28 20WHQL 20Certified.zip
Once downloaded Unzip the file and REMEMBER where you UnZipped it to as you will need to Browse to it later

You must also disconnect Internet access to prevent Windows from searching for VCP Drivers and installing the wrong drivers again

Before you can install the correct FTDI VCP drivers you need to uninstall two incorrect VCP drivers
In Windows, go to Control Panel then to Device Manager

in Device Manager, expand the COM Ports by clicking on the left of Ports (COM & LPT)

identify the COM Port that appears when KMX1 or KMX2 is connected via a USB cable

Right click on that COM Port which is COM19 in this example, yours will be different.
Click on Uninstall

Tick Delete the driver software for this device
Click OK

collapse the COM Ports by clicking on the left of Ports (COM & LPT)

expand the Universal Serial Bus Controllers by clicking on the left of Universal Serial Bus Controllers

Right click on USB Serial Converter

FTDI

Not all functionality is supported on all radios. See Model Support

As of MacOS 10.9, signed packages are required by default. Apple charges for this capability, and requires use of their tooling to do it. For the time being, MacOS users may need to disable signed package checking for CHIRP. Instructions provided by Jim, K2SON:

  1. Locate the app in Finder.
  2. Right click (control-click if you don't have a 2 button mouse) on the app and click Open.
  3. You will get a dialog box about it being an unsigned app, click the Open button.
  4. Enter an Administrator userid and password.
  5. The app will now be flagged to allow it to be opened normally in the future.

Alternately, you can disable them for your entire system, although this has security implications that should not be ignored. Instructions for this provided by Tom, KD7LXL:

  1. Open your System Preferences
  2. Go to Security & Privacy, General tab.
  3. Click the lock
  4. Then choose Allow apps downloaded from: Anywhere.

As of 10.12 (Sierra) the UI for disabling app security was removed. The functionality is still there, but must be enabled from the command line.

To whitelist a single application (like an unzipped chirp-daily.app):
  1. unzip chirp.zip
  2. control click on the unzipped application and select New Terminal at Folder. (Don't see that menu item? Instructions to enable it)
  3. run this command in the newly opened terminal window:

Alternately, you can disable them for your entire system, although this has security implications that should not be ignored. Run this command in a terminal:

references: single commandglobal

Unfortunately, Apple has made significant changes in 10.15 which cause major issues for independent software developers. CHIRP is significantly impacted and the future is unclear.

At the very least, Catalina users should use the 'unified' build of the app provided on the download page, which uses the system's 64-bit python runtime. Also note that there are significant limitations on what files unsigned applications can access which makes it very difficult to open, save, find, and otherwise organize image and CSV files with chirp. Please see issue #7147 for the current information about workarounds.

What Is A USB Host Controller? (with Pictures)

USB to serial cables are not merely wire, they contain small computer circuits at one end of the cable that respond as a USB device and convert the data to serial. These cables are not all the same, so the computer needs a software 'driver' so it can recognize the cable and speak to it correctly. You will need to install one of these 5 below.

FTDI cables¶

Note that with Mac OSX 10.9 'Mavericks', Apple provides their own driver for FTDI chipset. You may need to remove the OEM FTDI driver and use only the Apple FTDI driver, or you may need to disable the Apple FTDI driver and install the OEM FTDI drivers. YMMV.

Version 1.5.1 is available for Mac OS X on 64 bit, 32 bit and PPC machines.

Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge VCP Drivers (including Kenwood TH-D72)¶

  • http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx
    Macintosh OSX driver for the Intel and PowerPC Platforms versions 10.4, 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, and 10.9.
  • In many cases you need to connect the cable to the radio first, then power the radio on, while holding down some buttons. The exact procedure varies by radio.
  • Some radios need to be put into a 'clone' mode to transfer to PC, some radios may need to be configured to use the mic/speaker jacks for PC transfer instead of for the speaker/mic. The exact procedure varies by radio.
  • You will need to download from the radio to CHIRP first, before uploading anything to the radio. CHIRP creates a template from the radio download so it knows how to talk to the radio.
  • If you want to download from one radio and upload those settings to another radio, first download from each radio to a separate “tab” of CHIRP. Then copy/paste from one tab to the other & upload back to the same radio that produced that tab. Do not try to upload to a radio directly from a tab that was not downloaded from that same radio.
  • Many USB to serial cables include a counterfeit Prolific chip. This can cause connection problems because the official Prolific driver will ignore the counterfeit chip. Some people have reported success by using an older version of the Prolific driver, or a 3rd party driver.
  • If you are using multiple USB cables, each will create a different “virtual port”, meaning that you will need to select the correct virtual port for your radio when connecting to your radio. CHIRP will give you this opportunity each time you download from the radio.
  • If CHIRP won’t launch & won't run, you may have neglected to install the Python runtime. CHIRP needs that. Even though Mac OS X includes Python built-in, the runtime has to be installed is because it includes PyGTK and some other libraries that Chirp requires, in addition to Python itself: http://www.d-rats.com/download/OSX_Runtime/
  • If your radio is not 'Supported', you can try downloading the newest Daily Build to see if support was recently added.

You can verify that the drivers are installed & working by connecting the USB cable to your Mac, then running “System Profiler”, or “System Information” (found in /Applications/Utilities ). When the USB cable is connected and drivers correctly installed, the cable will show up in the USB section of the System Profiler.

Another way to see that the driver is correctly installed is to open Terminal and type:

It will return a list of virtual serial ports including something similar to:

You may also type:

That will return a long list of kexts, including something similar to this at the bottom (most recently installed are listed last):
