Huzzah not in list of Serial ports? Answered

Greetings Becky, I've installed the SiLabs VCP driver on my Mac and all my Arduino software is up to date. Yet the board is still not showing up in the Tools => Port serial list. The board lights up when connected (Blue & Red lights flash once and Yellow is rapid continuous) but that's it. Do I have to run the VCP driver (if so, how? I can only find the .dmg & .zip files).

Thanks, Rupert (aged 52 and a half ;-) )...

In addition to the driver, you also must install ESP8266 board support inside your Arduino software, detailed here: https://www.instructables.com/lesson/Software-Setu...
