Choosing a Debugger

When considering the debuggers, its worth considering whether the vMicro Serial Debugger or a hardware debugger is better suited to your needs.

See our comparison chart of Debugging features here


Additional Driver Installation Zadig Tool Icon

If your probe requires the additional driver to be installed, this will need to be the "WinUSB" driver, which needs to be installed on "Interface 0" on your probe.

See the this page about how to install the driver for your debug probe.
