Hi! I've reviewed several threads on the forum regarding trouble with the CP2102 drivers from Silicon Labs, but as recently as April of 2021 noted it's been noted as working with the latest drivers. However I just spent a few hours pulling my hair out with this particular usb device from both Windows 10 and RaspberryPi Servers, and in both cases, the VirtualHere client can use the device, and it shows up correctly on the Windows PC in Device manager, however whenever I try to open up the Virtual Com port using any tool (CoolTerm, Putty, PySerial) the device drops (Windows plays the USB unplug notification), and the software trying to open the port reports that it failed to open. VirtualHere Client maintains the hold on the USB device, and it immediately shows back up in Windows Device Manager.
Note that in both cases, I am able to use FTDI-based VCOM devices from the same VirtualHere Clients and Servers without any trouble, so the issue seems to be specific to Silicon Labs. Is there any chance that this functionality is broken in the current releases of VirtualHere client/server applications? Thanks so much for your time / attention. I'd love to get this working for a current project.
