Re: Either firmware update or new window killed my ascm function

I am confused about how you updated the firmware with the USB cable and serial port yet the Universal Firmware Configuration Tool (UFCT) did not find the very same serial port. Can you upload a screen capture of the UFCT showing what you see? There is nothing inherently wrong with the firmware nor the UFCT as we have several customers now who have been successful with it, not to mention we completed a very extensive private and public beta test program prior to release.
