USB revisited
« on: August 13, 2017, 01:45:57 pm »
I keep running into problems with USB on OS/2 and am not clear whether I can use one version to achieve all the tasks I want to. I've just download usb_modeswitch

http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/dev/util/usb_modeswitch-1.0.2a.zip

 which includes usbcalls.dll  usbresmg.sys

I also need PL2303 support in usbcom.sys

I want to be able to use X10 - not sure if usbcom.sys  need sny special requirements.

I also need to be able to access USB storage devices - sticks, disks etc

Are the latest drivers on Hobbes http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/download/pub/os2/system/drivers/misc/usbdrv218.zip able to cope with all these tasks or do I need different vesions?

At the moment on booting, I see an error saying

c:\os2\boot\usbresmg.sys not installed

 so I'm not sure why that is happening.

You must not use these. Use the latest from Lars or Arac Noae.

I suppose so. These are in fact the latest from Lars.

Perhaps you have more than one device driver statement for usbresmg.sys in config.sys defined.
