Hey all, anyone know of a working ANT+ driver for Windows 11? The TR one installs fine on my machine, but doesn’t seem to let my dongle get detected by TR. I know the real answer is “downgrade to Windows 10 because 11 literally just came out so there are probably bugs” but I’d like to avoid that if possible.
Nevermind, I solved it. In case anyone needs help:
The driver installed fine after enabling dotNET 3.5, but my dongle wasn’t being recognized. I found a notification in the notification pane that said something like “finish installing device” and I clicked it and now everything works.
I have an IT managed laptop from work and I was getting the .NET framework error when trying to install the TR ANT+ drivers. It would say that I needed .NET Framework version 3.5 or higher, and that caused some confusion for me because after downloading most recent .NET framework from MS website I got an error saying I already had the most recent version of .NET installed.
I found how to check and enable .NET framework for Windows 10!
Go to Control Panel>Programs and under “Programs and Features” there is an option to “Turn Windows Features On or Off”------BINGO!
Click that and follow the directions to enable both .NET Framework 3.5 and .Net Framework 4.8.
NOTE: My .Net Framework 3.5 was not enabled originally AND only a couple of services of my .Net Framework 4.8 were enabled. IT DID NOT work for me to only enable everything in .NET Framework 4.8. I had to enable everything in .Net framework 3.5 as well.
I hope this helps someone else with a IT managed laptop.
Just installing Garmin Express seemed to make mine work. It is a semi-generic one I got from Amazon in 2017. Just FYI if you install Garmin Express you need to make sure it is not running when you try to use the ANT+ adapter with other apps, it tends to take over.
That’s the 2nd option in my link in my post above (drivers) but through Garmin so it should be a legit link. The manual install worked for me. Seems wins 11 is a bag of spades as I found out when I had to solve further problems with the RGT Wahoo install
