I'm trying to run MyUSB's USBtoSerial demo again.
The USBKey stays in enumeration mode and
the virtual serial port never shows up.

Two things are different from last time.
I'm using a JTAGICEmkII for programming
and I'm using a different USBKey.

Is there a magic spell I need to cast when changing USBKeys?

Now I can see a problem here. :)

If you having a dig at Dean for liking Hypertetminal, which by the way I use from time to time and don't think it is half as bad as people make up it to be, then you may not expect much help form the authour of MyUSB which happens to be Dean. :?

But I know that he is bigger than that...by a few days at least... :lol:

I hadn't reached the conclusion that Dean liked Hyperterminal or
even that he thought it all that good for use with MyUSB.
It's possible I missed something.

I'm sure Dean is of a reasonable size,
but I'm at a loss regarding the source of the measurement.

In any case, I expect the need, if any, for a magic spell more likely
derives from the combination of USB and Windows than anything else.

I am one who uses Hyperterminal exclusively.

To be honest, I can't for the life of me understand why Hyperterminal is hated so much. I can make Hyperterminal do pretty much anything I want it to do.

I've communicated with Hyperterminal at 230.4K BAUD, done direct cursor addressing, controlled the background and foreground color of ASCII text & DOS style graphics - all using "Home-Brew " Mega32/Mega644 based controller projects.

Why is it then, that Hyperterminal is hated so much?

I, for one, do not hate Hyperterminal.
I don't have to hate something to be amused by comments about it.
That said, what I'd read about Hyperterminal and Bray's terminal
caused me to go looking for Bray's terminal.
I don't use Bray's terminal much either.
I use python because I can code in it.

Unlike FLIP, Hyperterminal has never crashed my computer.

Hyperterminal is pretty awful, for anything other than the most basic of tasks. That's not to say it isn't useful, I just miss the more advanced features of Br@y's Terminal and the likes.

I've found that Windows can be very temperamental. Vista refused to enumerate the USBtoSerial project for me last week, yet it works fine now. I've no idea why it fails.

Does a) changing to another USB port, b) changing the serial number string or c) changing the device Product ID in the descriptors work?

I'll test that on Monday after I've gotten help from a Windows doctor.
I rebooted my work computer with two instances of FLIP running.
It came up with a light show.

The Windows doctor didn't find anything wrong.
The light show subsided over the weekend.
I can run USBtoSerial now,
but don't know why.
I've abandoned Flip for JTAG.
