I have 9 ADMV1014-EVALZ but ACE (1.23.3085.133, 64 bits) does not recognize any of them. I installed the ACE ADMV1014-1014 plugin using the plug-in Manager, no problem.
When I connect the ADMV1014 board to the computer using the USB, the system (Windows Device Manager) recognizes it assigning the driver ADMV1014-05188 RevA but with an exclamation mark (!) showing there is a problem. I start ACE and nothing happens, ACE does not recognize the board, any of them. "Refresh Attached Hardware" button, no result. Nothing. When "Acquire hardware" on the ADMV1014 ACE plugin, I get "State = Unavailable".
Then, I hypothesized that there is a problem with the ADMV1014 driver, so I download the ADMV1014 specific driver linked in its webpage (ADMV1014EvaluationBoardUSBDriver.zip, which contains a single file named ADR6780EvaluatonBoardUSBDriver). I installed the driver, and the system (Windows Device Manager) detects the boards as High-Speed DAC USB Evaluation Board (v2), but no exclamation marks.
Then I start the ACE again , and still nothing. Followed all the instructions, installed an reinstalled 5 times, used 2 laptops, always same results.
What I am doing wrong? My wild guess would be that there is something wrong with the drivers or ACE? I have a colleague of mine who installed the software 2 months ago and it works as a charm in his laptop.
