any idea, how to fix a Code 10 ?



Andy Allred [MS]

New keys were added to full SP1 that the hid drivers have a dependency
on for *some* Composite devices, so there are a few devices that are
affected if these keys are not in the runtime. Try adding these to your
Extra Registry Settings within TD:

IgnoreHWSerNum04710302 = REG_BINARY 1 1
GlobalDisableSerNumGen = REG_BINARY 1 1
GenericUSBDeviceString = REG_SZ "USB Device"
GenericCompositeUSBDeviceString= REG_SZ "Composite USB Device"
