Hi Drone-mause
Try downloading the full Arduino ZIP install package from

You don’t need to install it, but extract the drivers from the archive, then point windows to them from the windows Device Manager.

Good idea @stephenvibes

Also have you installed mission planner via the installation wizard, as part of the installation it will install the USB drivers.
