        Thank you glad there were no big hitches. You do have the last released firmware which was updated in June 2019.

          I got the dongle from you several months ago and now trying to install. How can I figure out what the firmware version is and what is the procedure for updating firmware? Thanks.

            The firmware version should be in the console window when you start zigbee2mqtt. The ones that I have programmed are 2018-10-24, 2019-02-23 and the current version 2019-06-08. It is likely you have 2019-02-23.

            Updating is not an over the air process. It requires the programming equipment. I can reflash if you want to send it back, but considering the cost is not that much it would be easier to to get a new one.

            If you do want to setup to do your own then follow the instructions at https://www.zigbee2mqtt.io/getting_s...he_cc2531.html. I can answer questions if you have difficulty.

              Thanks. I ordered the TI debugger. However, I am having all kinds of issues trying to implement MQTT. I first started with Windows and I could not update the driver with the TI driver, because Windows 10 stated the best driver was already installed (MS Windows driver). So, I tried to implement everything on an RPi3 and I have an issue with zigbee2mqtt that at least one other person has: "cannot find the module 'zigbee-herdsman/dist/ziee' . Kroenkk sent a message with a fix, which did not fix it for me.

                Was the "fix" the one I saw posted about 10 hour ago?
                "After updating you need to do a rm -rf node_modules && npm install"

                I just did a new Windows 10 install following the instructions I posted at https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/li...qtt-on-windows
                1. Need to install driver for CC2531. It is available at http://www.ti.com/general/docs/lit/g...8&fileType=zip . Unzip to someplace on the computer. Plug the USB dongle into available USB port. It should show up as an "Other Device" TI CC2531 USB CDC. Right click on this device and select option to install driver. Browse to "\driver" subfolder of the unzip. Device should now show up under Ports (COM & LPT) as a COMXX where XX was 15 in my case.
                Based upon your description it looks as if you had W10 search for the driver rather than manually searching for the specific folder where you unzipped the download.

                  Yes.

                  So, the dongle is brought in directly as COM8. Then, I followed the instructions you gave: I instructed Win10 to search in MQTT\swrc088c\driver for the driver and I get "The best drivers for your device are already installed..." Will it work under these conditions?

                    The purpose of updating the driver is so the Windows with recognize it as a COM port. If it shows up as COM8 then it should be good. No particular experience other than doing it once under W7 and once under W10 and in both cases it first showed as a generic USB device and not as a COM. Only after I did the driver update did is recognize it as COM.

                      Thanks. So, I went back to Windows. Start up of zigbee2mqtt failed. I have attached the log file, which I cannot decipher. Additionally, the feedback at the command prompt, when I ran npm start, stated "Error: Cannot find module 'semver'," which I do not see in the log file. mcsMQTT shows the broker working on my RPi3.

                      • I would like to be able to help with zigbee2mqtt execution, but I have very little nodejs experience. Suggest submitting issue on the Zigbee2MQTT site.
