Is this the same PC,or is it a new one? I have a serial version of
MyBlaster, and it works fine.. You did edit the script and changed the
port and entered the the equipment ID ?
One other thing that could cause that not to work, would be if you have
it plugged into a USB3 port, seeing these are quite old the blaster's
may not work with USB3... I love my MyBlaster it takes less that 5
minutes to setup..
I wish I could find a few to keep as spares.. I check Ebay a few
times a month,to see if any are posted...
