    Thanks This worked for my fric that wouldn't connect after previous update attempt. I'm now at v3.5. Wondering if I will have to do this for future updates?

    It's just a windows problem. Once you've assigned the driver like this, you shouldn't have the problem again. My installer is supposed to do it, but for some reason, windows driver installation doesn't always work if the device isn't actually present at the time of installation (referring to the bootloader). I intend on improving this.
