You are connecting one of Infineon's develepmont boards, e.g. XMC boards with debugger chip XMC4200, to the PC and the board is not recognized by the Windows OS Device Manager?
Probably you are using an USB charging cable instead of an USB data cable. You might sort your USB cables with the help of a smartphone.
In case you connect the phone with a charging cable it shows you with a thunderbold sign on the top right that the battery is being charged.
Using a data cable will change the situation, the USB connection will be shown by a dialog asking you if the computer is allowed to access the phone's data.

Please refer to this picture about the USB connection to the XMC4200 debugger chip.
