All, I'm new to Parallax and just received my USB starter kit. The initial detection works fine of the BOE and I can download the code to the Basic Stamp module. However, subsequent operations to the module result in either the BOE not being detected or the my XP Pro SP2 laptop hanging stating that the COM port is in use or it will just say "Scanning." In either case, powering down the BOE does not help and I am forced to reboot the system. After reboot, I had to Disable then Enable the USB Serial Port via Device Manager to get it to detect the BOE and then the above process repeats again. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem or is there an update to the software that helps control this. I am using version 2.2 of the Stamp Editor.
