Error: No game controller was found on USB ports.

Above is the link for my log file.
Gimx adapter, made myself (Teensy 2.0 w/ pins, USB 2.0 to TTL UART 6PIN CP2102 Module Serial Converter.
Firmware is 5.8/EMUPS4/atmega32u4.hex
Gaming target is PS4.
Game will be GT Sport. (same issue with G25 connected with drivers installed, no DS4 controller detected)
Controller is original DS4 with original cable.
Windows 10 up to date.
All drivers installed.
Tried multiple cables and controllers.
Gimx adapter is wired correctly, swapping rx/tx results in adpter not found, swap rx/tx........
All usb ports have power saving disabled.
Re-installed Gimx, read tutorial multiple times. Pretty sure adapter is good.

Advice please, thanks.

Hello,

Are you plugging DS4 directly to the pc without any hubs etc? Does it work in games.

Yes it works with games when not connected to pc and when playing remotely with pc. And no, it is not plugged into a hub.
I can check the config without the ds4 hooked up and it says no controller detected, true. I plug controller in, refresh gimx launcher, and it says config seems ok, so it must be able to see the ds4. Start the process and no controller found error.

Did you try any other cable?
Could you please install UsbDk from the GIMX/tool directory and see if it provides any error?

Yes, I've tried 5 cables and 3 controllers. I had installed UsbDk without errors. I uninstalled just now and tried to reinstall and got UsbDk Runtime Libraries error.
