2x mk 2010 grids -- unable to connect to serialosc (Windows 10)

@silent_strangers and I spent a buncha time troubleshooting their setup. hoping to crowdsource some help.

  • 2x mk 2010 era grids (chris can you please confirm 8x8, 8x16, or 16x16?)
  • previously, had the latest stable serialosc installed
  • working with Max 8
  • patches bundled with the monome Max Package could connect via the serialosc dropdown and send LED values to the grid, but neither grid is able to send button presses
  • also, older patches (like parc) had a blank bpatcher instead of the serialosc dropdown

so, I asked chris to install @artfwo’s 1.4.2 beta, but now serialosc is not discovering either grid at all – on the Package Manager patches, the dropdown just says “none” when a grid is connected.

any ideas from Windows 10 folks? don’t think there should be any issues specific to the generation, but I wasn’t able to replicate with a 2015 grid.

(this might also help us establish Windows troubleshooting docs, which would be :100:)

No idea if this would help but at one point I had to do the following to get my 2012 era grid working under Win 10
