According to the Silabs Forum their Windows 10 driver will not install with the latest Win 10 update (build 1803). Previously installed drivers will continue to work, this only affects new driver installation.

Yeah, I imagine if it had affected existing installations there would have been a lot more tears.

Actually, it did affect mine, couldnt recognise it, i ended up having to manually select the driver from the list of drivers.

1. Pester them to release a properly signed driver - good luck!
2. Switch Windows into a mode so that it allows the install of unsigned drivers. Lots of info out there about the handful of different ways of doing that. For instance...
https://windowsreport.com/driver-signature-enforcement-windows-10/

From all accounts the switching boot mode method is the most reliable.

All of them are hacks for the real problem though, the drivers should be signed!

I think the older "Windows 7/8/8.1/10 (v6.7.5)" driver is OK too.

I think that one will work, OR they could follow the instructions in the link in my first post to modify the Win 10 driver.
