Windows Device Icons for Programmable Bricks

This is a small program for Windows that adds pretty icons so that when you plug in your LEGO® MINDSTORMS NXT or EV3 or your WeDo USB Hub, it will display in the Printers and Devices window in the Control Panel.

Demo 1

Installation

  • Download the latest release.
  • Unzip the .zip file.
  • Run the PBrickInstaller.msi file.
  • Read notes below.

Notes

  • After installing or uninstalling, you will have to manually remove any existing devices and reinstall them to get the correct icons. To do this, plug in the device so that it appears in Printers and Devices. Then right- click on it and select Remove. Finally, physically unplug the device and plug it in again.
  • Only works when plugged in via USB. It does not work when connecting via bluetooth (and for technical reasons, it is not possible to add support for bluetooth).
  • Works on Windows 7 or higher only.
