Windows 7 (serial not working)

In Windows 7, you had to manually install the Mbed serial driver to enable the serial port. The legacy mBed driver is still available, but as Windows 7 reaches end of life you should upgrade your operating system accordingly.

Windows 8.1/10 (WebUSB not working)


If the Mbed Serial driver has been manually installed it might interfere with the Windows 8.1/10 automatic installation of the WebUSB driver.

It is possible that a driver was previously installed on the Windows machine if you have upgraded from Windows 7

To check if you have this driver already:

  1. Open Windows Device Manager and see if the micro:bit USB device is shown. If it is...
  2. find the mbed Composite Device entry, right click on it and select Uninstall device.
  3. A new window will open, mark the Delete the driver software for this device box and click Uninstall.
  4. Unplug and replug your micro:bit and it should appear under USB devices.
