Problems finding Atarimax APE USB for Windows 10

Recommended Posts

I have an Atarimax APE and I cannot seem to find drivers for the unit for Windows 10.

The drivers on the disk are 64bit, however Win 10 doesn't recognize the device.

I can never seem to get a response to be registered on their forum but it don't matter as the drivers dont seem to exist for Win 10 on the forum.

 

Has anyone got the APE to work in windows 10?

Is there a way to force Win 10 to use the drivers from a different platform? say win 7 64bit?

I run ape on my windows 10 laptop no problem.

I have the atarimax usb version of sio2pc.

I used the disc included in my purchase.it is a registered version.

I've used my AtariMax SIO2PC-USB dual port with Windows 10 64-bit for years without issue.

Yes, the AtariMax APE drivers can work on a Win10 machine. 

 

After installing APE and the drivers from the CD, reboot your computer.

 

Open the Device Manager and locate the SIO2USB drivers. On my computer it will be under the "AtariMax USB Devices" but it may be under a different heading on your machine.

 

I right-clicked on the device and then clicked on "Properties". Go to the "Driver" tab.

 

Click on "Update Driver". You should have an option to specify the location of the drivers (vs. having Windows search for it). Point to specific location and let Windows do its magic. 

 

At least that worked for me. :)

Also been using APE with Win10 64-bit for years, with the USB interface.  Don't think I had to do anything special - just install it.

Win10 APE registered with both rs232 and usb version of their sio2pc... all works as expected here.

Well.... It works.. but the device mangler still doesn't recognize it. But it does work. I was frieking out because the device mangler didn't recognize.  I also put it on a 4 port hub and its playing nice now.

But I still have a unrecognized descriptor in device mangler.

When I was running 64bit win 7 I did get the Atarimax driver info but now I don't.

 

restarted APE and it said USB mode was good. 

Got a ration about virtual and serial ports but last line was that APE was ready.

loaded an ATR and hit restart on computer and it loaded.

 

Thank you for your support!

Email him to get the latest version if you haven't already.... that might help with your remaining issues.
