After reading (carefully) the instructions I attempted to get a USB connection to my WindowsVista 64bit computer. After several failed attempts I went to Device Manager as it says in the instructions when using vista.
I went to Device Manager. There I clicked on the "Action" Tab and clicked on "Add legacy Hardware". I then clicked on Install the Hardware manually. I then clicked on "Have Disk." I then browsed to find the folder UBWDriverInstaller_v20. In this folder was a file called mchpcdc.inf. I clicked on "open." It then says to click next to start installing the new hardware. I then get the following error message:
Completing the Add Hardware Wizard
The following hardware was not installed:
USB Serial (UBW-based) communications port
An error occurred during the installation of the device
The date area passed to a system call is too small
As a last resort I tried the version UBWDriverInstaller_v10. This time it supposedly accepted it and I did not get the error message. Unfortunately, when I went to Inkscape and tried to do the setup it again said "No eggbot on serial port."
What am I doing wrong?
