I have a USB dongle that worked fine in the past, but recently started failing. I reinstalled the drivers with no change. The same drivers and device work on a different machine, so it is something with this PC.
When installed, Windows 10 now says it's an unknown device. The device event log says "Device USB\VID_... could not be migrated" and "Device USB\VID_... was configured. Driver Name: null" which means it has no driver loaded. Uninstalling and reinserting has no effect.
Clicking on [Update Driver] does nothing at all, even though the status window says:
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) There are no compatible drivers for this device. To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver.
Is there any way to specify the driver for this device? Is there a way to completely purge the device and driver from Windows memory and start over?
