281Re: Can't download Virtual Machine to IntelliBrain
- Aug 13, 2008Peter,
If there isn't another COM port listed other than your USB serial
adapter, this indicates the AirCable USB adapter isn't installed
correctly in Windows. When you plug the AirCable USB device into a
USB port Windows should indicate there is newly found hardware. Also
in the Device Manager within the Windows control panel you should see
the USB port listed. If you don't see a port for the AirCable USB
adapter listed consult the AirCable documentation and website for
Also, there is no need to download anything to determine if the
IntelliBrain and the PC can communicate. The VM State indicates "Not
Responding" when the two can't communicate. Any other state
indicates the two are in communication. As long as "Not Responding"
appears, downloading programs won't be possible.
