Hi, I just downloaded the latest software but it does not see my printer.

I also have installed an older Cura application that see's my printer(PrintBot simple) without any problems.

I was wondering if there was anyone who has had this problem or is there a setting I need to enable.

I have been using the older app for a while and works fine, I just thought I would upgrade to the newer one but I guess, if it aint broke don't upgrade applies here.

Thanks in advance for any solutions, ideas or suggestions.

    I'd stick with latest 15.X version. I assume you don't have an Ultimaker printer - just the printrbot. Have you tried other nozzle sizes on your printrbot by the way? .6 prints real fast and .25 prints real fine.

    I just flashed a new board using 15.x on one of my UM2s, I had to reset and re-hook the printer a few times before it saw it. I am not sure why, but it did take a few tries. Same spot as you, I run that machine tethered to a metal plus every day, but it just took a few attempts before it saw and updated the Ultimaker.
