How to Install and Troubleshoot Schneider TSXCUSB485 Driver 20
The Schneider TSXCUSB485 is a USB to RS485 converter cable that allows you to connect your PC to Modicon PLCs or other devices that use the Modbus or Unitelway protocols.

However, some users may encounter problems when using this cable with Windows 10, such as the cable not being recognized by the system or not appearing in the com port folder. In this article, we will show you how to install and troubleshoot the Schneider TSXCUSB485 driver 20 on Windows 10.
The installation procedure for the Schneider TSXCUSB485 driver 20 is detailed in the user guide called \"Communication Drivers: Installation manual\" (35006152.08), which you can download from the Schneider Electric website[^2^]. Here are the main steps:

Select the language and follow the instructions on the screen.

If you encounter any problems when using the Schneider TSXCUSB485 driver 20 on Windows 10, here are some tips to fix them:
The most probable reason is that Windows provides the driver from Windows Update site instead of using the driver from SchneiderModbusDriverSuite (part of Unity Pro/ControlExpert installation)[^1^]. To solve this, you need to disable the automatic download of manufacturers apps and custom icons for your devices. To do this, open Control Panel > System > Advanced system settings > Hardware > Device installation setting and select \"no\" for the option \"Do you want to automatically download manufacturers apps and custom icons available for your device?\"[^1^]. Then, uninstall TSX cable driver (in Serial USB folder) when TSXCUSB485 cable is plugged in. Unplug the TSX cable, restart PC and reinstall the driver as described above.
If you still have problems, you may need to uninstall DriverManager x64. To do this, search DriverManager x64 in registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Uninstall, then copy the uninstall string (msexec...) and run it[^1^]. Then, reinstall the driver as described above.
Another possible reason is that Microsoft .NET framework is not enabled on your PC. To enable it, run \"Turn windows features on or off\" and check if Microsoft .NET framework is enabled including 2 sub options (Foundation HTTP activation, Framework activation)[^1^]. Then, reinstall the driver as described above.
