HID device not found

Jul 30, 2012 at 9:02 PM

Hello !

I just tried your lib and used the example app. I paste-in the

GUID of the HID class, but my device - which is working - was

not found. Any help would be great.

Btw, I found it ugly to beeing forced to specify a GUID.

The most libs, I found so far, use PID/VID of a device

to identify it. Would it be easy to change the WinUsbManager

manager class to search devices that way ??


Thanks anyway.

Same problem here. I'm using the HID driver, I got the GUID for it, but WinUSBNet doesn't find it. What can I do? I must create an own driver?

WinUSB is not for HID's. There is an HID driver and API for that.

I would recommend using HidSharp when working with HID devices and it works with VID/PID.


VID/PID is the most common way on other platform since there is no concept of GUID together with USB devices. I do believe that a VID/PID based enumeration would be a usefull feature, but than again DosMan has a Point in working only with GUID.
