I'm trying to get a USB DMX Dongle working on a Windows 10 computer. Mine, specifically, is a Lynx DMX Dongle from DiyLightAnimation, but since it isn't a very active forum now, I thought I'd ask here.

I want to hook mine up to my Windows 10 laptop, but I couldn't get it to work. I was specifically trying the Lynx DMX Deck program to test basic communications to a Lynx Express AC light controller and had no luck. Since my Windows 10 installation is 64-bit, I installed the 64-bit drivers from https://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm.

I pulled out my old Windows 7 laptop, hooked up the same dongle, and it worked like a charm, so the USB dongle, AC controller, and cabling are fine.

I plugged it back into my Windows 10 laptop and compared COM port settings. Still nothing. The serial port settings were the same at 9600, 8, N, 1.

Are there any special tricks I'm missing?
