Digispark Pro Windows 7 Driver

So you followed the instructions and the driver still didn't load.

No matter what you do you can't find the driver.

Looks like the newer versions of the Arduino IDE dont' "trust" the driver installer package which will be downloaded into a hidden folder when you add the board to the Board Manager in the Arduino IDE.

To complete the install and allow the driver to load you must execute the driver installer manually from:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Arduino15\packages\digistump\tools\micronucleus\2.0a4\install.exe

Once this is done you can connect your Digispark and watch the driver load like it should.

Fix broken Fax in Windows 8.1

Since Windows 7, Windows has had fairly comprehensive abilities to send and receive faxes using compatible modem hardware either internally via PCI, or via USB.

Unfortunately, due to a bug in Windows 8.1, you may get the feture setup but unable to complete receiving an incoming fax or not able to complete sending without problems.

In addition, received documents contained in the faulty profile may temprarily disappear when the modem "falls off".

Through the Microsoft TechNet, a solution has been found here.

Simply download the FXST30.dll file from that thread, and replace the "broken" verison in C:\Windows\System32\
