I know there are numerous posts on this subject and I searched last night and couldn’t find a solution. I was running everything fine with XP Pro and did a Win 7 fresh install on another disk and can’t connect to Easel now. Com port 3 in device manager shows the arduno is using that port but UGS and Easel will not connect. In UGS the message I get is: Error opening connection(jssc Serial Port Exception) port name - Com 3; Method name Open Port:) Exception type Port Busy.
Any ideas on this? oh yea it did work on Win 7 until 168 updates were applied then every thing went south. I even disabled AVG.
Any help is appreciated and sorry if I missed the solution in a previous post.
Ok very strange. I wasn’t trying UGS with Easel open or vise versa. I did disable com 3 and then re-enabled it and UGS worked fine. Then I shut that down and loaded up Easel and tried the machine setup and it just hangs before you can even enter a com port. So then I shut Easel down and tried UGS again and got the same message I posted in the first post here. I don’t understand why UGS would work once then not again after trying Easel.
Re-installed EaselLocal 0.2.3 and it did nothing. UGS works fine as long as I don’t try to load Easel up. I even disabled windows firewall and AVG and still nothing. Forgot to mention I’m using Google Chrome
You want V0.2.2, which Zach links to in the thread I posted. 0.2.3 tries to automatically guess the right COM port, 0.2.2 you have to manually enter. I haven’t downgraded mine yet, but if my machine goes to sleep between jobs, I have to reboot to get Easel to work again.
I had similar issues. Using Win7 pro, UGS and GRBL 0.9i. I had to go back to GRBL 0.8c. Now there are no issues with connecting to Easel or to UGS. At least I can investigate some issues while working toward upgrading to the newest GRBL version.
I am having trouble as well with Windows 7 I have saved 0.2.2 but every time I go in to machine setup it defaults me to use 0.2.3 but I have deleted the file from my computer. I am not computer expert so I am not sure exactly what I am doing wrong or not sure how to install 0.2.2.
