      I had that same problem a couple of weeks ago when I set up my new Vantage Vue. After I unplugged the USB cable from the computer and plugged it into anotheR port, the computer immediately recognized it. Then I plugged it into the original port and it works fine.
      hOPES THIS HELPS.

Since it supports the VP2, I would think that it supports the Vue as I believe they use the same data logger (USB or serial).
