    I have a Compact Logix Catalogue 1769-L16ER-BB1B, a lap top Hewlett Packard with Windows 10. I tried to connect the Controller to lap top using a USB cable, but I can´t do it. I checked the Device Manager of Windows, and found a Message fail the driver because the system can´t verify the firmware.Sin título.jpg. Do you know, how I can get the driver ?

    Good morning jorgepatdale,

    The USBCIP driver comes with RSLinx Classic, so I'm surprised it didn't come up automatically like it did in my video here:

    Do you have a Windows 10 compatible version of RSLinx Classic? (3.90 or greater?)

    If not you can find the free RSLinx Classic Lite download at AB.com

    It's not in English so I can't read it... what version of RSLinx do you have installed?

    Edit - At this point you may just want to use Ethernet as shown below, or contact Rockwell support?
