I have a USB device which is recognized as a COM port on Windows 10, but in order to work, I must force it to use a custom device driver (not signed). This procedure works fine, but if I unplug this device and connect another sample, It's again recognized as a COM port (this didn't happened on Windows 7).
I already disabled driver signature check, and testing indicates that the port in which the device is connected doesn't matter:
- A device for which I manually selected the driver can be connected to any USB port and it will work.
- A device (same model) for which I let Windows install the driver, will always be detected as a COM port, no matter in which USB port I connect it.
Is there any way to tell Windows 10 to use the driver I want for every device having the same VID/PID, instead of the one built in one?
