I fail to update my firmware - What am I doing wrong?


Hi community,

Since I have this mount I never managed to update the firmware. I gave it an other try with the recent firmware update, but no success.

 To update I use the PMC-Eight Configuration manager version 1.0.3.
The Log looks like:

9       ERR:303-No serial ports found.

8       Path to EEPROM: "C:\Users\AstroLuke\Downloads\PMC-Eight 20A01 Firmware Installation Kit 2021-07-01\20A01.03.eeprom"

2       Sending via Serial: ESGv!
1       Mount appears to be connected on Serial
0       The mount does not appear to be connected. Please check your settings and network connection.

I am connected to the mount, I can control it, but when updating it says "serial not found"...
