Somagic EasyCap grabber driver

Hello,
Just trying to figure out how I can Install the somagic driver on IoT? This is needed for running my EasyCap garbber
Image

I am quiet a starter on Rpi2 and first try out with Raspbian. Downloading and installing the official releases following instructions from easycap-somagic-linux https://code.google.com/p/easycap-somagic-linux/ and I have been able to grab with somagic-capture.

Now I really do not know how to process that on IoT!
I tired to follow this : http://embedded101.com/Blogs/David-Jone ... ial-driver
As :
  • devcon.exe dp_add c:\Users\Administrator\Documents\EasyCap_SOMAGIC_1.0.8.28\Win7_32\SmiUsbGrabber3C.inf
  • devcon status "USB\VID_1C88&PID_0007"
I got :
-- USB\VID_1C88&PID_0007\SMBL007
-- Name: SM-USB 007
-- The device has the following problem: 28
-- Problem status: 0xC0000490

I suppose then that this driver need to be compiled for ARM platform?
Or is there a way to do like for Raspbian (extracting firmware...)

From the link you supplied at http://embedded101.com/Blogs/David-Jone ... ial-driver

CM_PROB_FAILED_INSTALL

The device's drivers are not installed.

Error Code

28

Display Message (Windows 2000 and later versions of Windows)

"The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)"

You might like to try "Generic USB communication" viewtopic.php?t=117061&p=847157 to get the very basic communication going but beyond that you are on your own (as this is not on the supported products list at MS).

You could try asking Somagic what plans they have to support their devices under Windows IoT on the Pi.

Hello Deovi,
Did you find any solution :?: ?

Thanks for the generic usb device, I tried out the solution but I still get same error.
I replace VID/PID as following: VID_1C88&PID_003C that I extracted from SmiUsbGrabber3C.inf file.
but still code :28 :?

Best

Windows 10 IoT Core has changed over the last 2 years, may I suggest you run the latest Insider Preview release.


Regards your device you will likely need to write a UWP Universal Driver:
