"The driver could not be installed no mbed microcontrollers were found"

I have been using the stm32f407 discovery board with mbed, which yeah I know is not supported however this board has the same microcontroller as "seed arch max" so I have been compiling the program from the mbed online IDE and flashing the device using STM32 ST-Link Utility. All my programs have been working fine but I have wanting to communicate the board with the PC I am using. I tried to install the mbedWin serial driver and I got the message "The driver could not be installed no mbed microcontrollers were found". Surely If the board has the same microcontroller as "seed arch max" which is supported I can get around this issue.

Can anybody give or link me to a solution, please?

Thank you in advance.

Christone, I have to same issues you have, albeit with a different processor/board. I'm fairly certain that the issues lie firmly in the (closed source) bootloader, and that we are stuck using an external serial adapter. I've been using either a Bus Pirate or simply tying into one of my proto-boards, or using a TTL-USB adapter, depending on what and where I'm working.

HTH.
