I'm using PEP version 184.108.40.206 on a Windows 10 VM (VMware Fusion) in my MacBook Pro. PEP was running great for me for years... I hadn't used PEP for about 7 or more months, but I had a need to make a configuration change. I fired it up, made my change, and tried to Download the change to my TSU9400. I got the error below. I searched this forum, and other folks have reported a similar issue, so I tried 3 different things, none of which worked:
1. Reinstall PEP version 220.127.116.11. Note: things that have changed since my PEP was last working include: installation of Visual Studio, update of VMware Fusion Pro from version 10.x to 11.0 and regular Windows updates. 2. Change ProntoDataService to start as a specified account 3. Try to disable HID USB devices
So, I'm at wits end on how to get download to work again.
Anyone have any suggestions?
