In our electronics tinker club, we had installed Arduino IDE 1.8 including drivers + the Holtek UART bridge (vendor ID 04D9, product ID B534) for the Elegoo Smart Car Kit 3.0 Plus (product link). The board is an Arduino Uno clone.
We now installed Arduino IDE 2.0.3 in parallel and tried that one, because its features looked promising.
However, in Arduino IDE 2.0.3, we had problems uploading the compiled sketch to the Smart Car Board. When I checked, it reported a different vendor ID and product ID (sorry, I didn't record which one).
I reinstalled the Holtek UART bridge driver (direct download executable) and tried again. The vendor ID and product ID were correct this time, but uploading was still not going well in Arduino IDE 2.0.3.
Switching back to Arduino IDE 1.8 doesn't help. While the code still compiles (I expected it to), the upload problems now affect Arduino 1.8 as well, which was totally fine before we installed Arduino IDE 2.0.3.
How could I fix this issue?
I'll try to uninstall and reinstall everything, but I'm not sure it will be possible to uninstall all drivers.
