I just found this awesome article by Reilly Grant covering all the quirks:
If the right descriptors are added, it should be possible to get working without the *.inf file. Windows is a mess - but it *is* possible.
There seem to be something wrong in the descriptors (at least in the WebUSB sample) preventing windows from picking up the device sans drivers - but I know it is possible because I made it in this project (mbed based... trying to find time to port it over ;)) ->
Also... remember that windows remembers devices and their drivers.. and during development/test of the solution, the easiest might be to have a clean windows VM that can be deleted on every try ... that or bump the PID ;) ... windows is ..interesting
This is because Windows needs an .inf file with matching VID/PID.
Marcin from Nordic is currently working on addressing that.
I want to evaluate the samples/subsys/usb/console sample. It looks quite easy from the README file. But my PC(win10) cannot recognize the USB console(I suppose CDC device) correctly.
PS: I connect the J3 port on pca10056 to my PC and switch the SW9 to "USB".
