Same for me. I’m running a 40h kit under win 10 64bit. Only way for me to see it connected is the old monome serial where it appears. Suggestion: I tried to install ftdi drivers and realized, that win10 obviously does have a sort of ftdi drivers already on board. Tried to manually override them, but i’m not sure if it worked. However, serialoscd.exe says: [!] running in debug mode, hotplugging disabled
serialosc [m40h1230]: connected, server running on port 17714. Hope you’re able to fix this … ;). Greetings
After some investigation: found out, that the serialosc service isn’t running. If i try to start it manually, it “says”, it isn’t possible cause the required dependent service isn’t running, but win10 didn’t mentioned which one this could be … any suggestions? THX!
For me serialoscd works on Windows 10, but hotplugging is disabled (so all devices needs to be attached prior to launching serialoscd.exe) and it is in debug mode. I’m getting the same output in the console as you:
[!] running in debug mode, hotplugging disabled
serialosc [m40h1230]: connected, server running on port 17714
For me it’s not a big deal to start serialoscd.exe manually (as opposed to have it automatically started / as a daemon of sorts), but I’d like hotplugging so that I don’t have to have all devices plugged in before starting serialoscd.exe.
hey, the main issue here is that the serialoscd service isn’t starting correctly. “debug mode” is just the message you get when running the executable directly (rather than as a service), and hotplugging is disabled because in earlier versions of serialoscd I hadn’t figured out how to make a non-service receive device arrival notifications. I’ve since figured out how to do so, but again the primary issue here is that it’s not running as a service.
I think the root cause here is that I’ve got something wrong in the service dependencies that’s preventing it from starting. I’ll find some time later this week to investigate.
I’ve been having issues with hotplugging on Windows 10 too. I just did a clean install a couple weeks ago and it’s still not working. What’s most frustrating is for some reason i lose connection sometimes when going from M4L edit mode back to Live so I’m having to restart the service a lot.
Was there ever any solution found to this problem? While preparing a live set I went back to my laptop, tried to solve it by reinstalling everything, with absolutely no luck. The problem seems to be that no matter if I check the “start serialosc service” box, it doesn’t run as service (it actually shows the service is not running when I check in msconfig), and it’s not starting automatically when I launch windows which means I have to run it manually using the exe. Which means hotplugging doesn’t work. Other than that, still absolutely 0 issue on my tower computer, hotplugging works like a charm, serialosc running as service as expected, it’s realllly confusing.
it was weird, i was on my windows 10 system yesterday to test something, and the monome worked fine… it showed up in the serialosc box like it should and i never had to start the service manually. i unplugged/ re-plugged the device several times and it re-connected perfectly.
