Arduino IDE requires a special Z-Uno package. To install Z-Uno package first go
to Preferences (File > Preferences) and enter http://z-uno.z-wave.me/files/z-uno/
package_z-wave.me_index.json in Additional Board Manager URLs field. Then go
to Board Manager (Tools > Board > Board Manager) and scroll to Z-Uno package.

I uninstalled Arduino IDE 1.8.5 and finally found and installed 1.6.5
Same results with both 1.8.5.and 1.6.5 - NO Z-UNO board type offered.
Needless to say, I closed and reopened both apps.....

Have you managed to select and install the Z-Uno package? Can you paste I a separate thread your screenshot of board manager Z-Uno package record and Tools->Boards menu

Here are the relative screen shots. What is the package you are referring to? I have not yet received the ZUNO yet...ordered but no idea when they will ship?

Looks like you missed the step with setting the URL in Board Manager.

Please don't miss steps 4 and 5 from this guide: https://z-uno.z-wave.me/install

I have followed the guide up to an error in step 10.

I have installed the z-uno tools and selected the board and programmer as z-uno. (through step 8)
I have skipped step 9 since I am on Win10, and I verified that there is no unknown device in device manager. (step 9)
In step 10 I cannot select the z-uno device as a port, it is not listed.
I have an Elegoo Uno R3 that correctly enumerates as COM5 and it works perfectly.

I have rebooted several times. I am using Arduino environment 1.8.13

What are other reasons for missing the COM port selection for the z-uno?

I have installed WindowsDriverUZB on the PC that is running Winver 1909, build 18363.900

The device still does not show an available Z-Uno port.

I have tried 3 known good USB cables (these cables work with other devices).
I have eliminated any hubs from the connection. Many other devices work on the PC's USB port.
I have 2 Z-Uno devices, neither one shows an available Z-Uno port.
Both Z-Uno devices power on and show a blinking LED.
The same behavior exists on a different PC running Winver 20H2 build 19042.746


Any other troubleshooting steps?
