Recently I moved to Win10 and used Arduino 1.8.5 to directly program a Pro Micro. Worked fine. But when I used the AVR to program an ATTiny85, I got the upload error shown below.
The AVR shows up in Device Manager as "Atmel/AVRISP mkii" but nothing under Ports (COM & LPT). Under Atmel/AVRISP mkii I see that the driver is OK although under Events I see "Device USB\VID_03EB&PID_2104\000200156091 was not migrated due to partial or ambiguous match."
In Arduino 1.8.5 I see COM1 as the only option. Moving the AVR to different USB ports makes no difference. During uploads I get the error:

Using Port : usb
Using Programmer : stk500v2
An error occurred while uploading the sketch
avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb" (0x03eb:0x2104)
avrdude done. Thank you.
and at the top it says "An error occurred while uploading the sketch"
Upgrading to 1.8.6 made no difference. I then moved to my Win7 laptop and got the same error.
When it used to work, I would select the correct COM and get no errors. Now I only get that COM1 option and the above error messages.
So how do I fix it?
Thanks in advance,
