13.06.2 COM detection on XP SP3

I have some strange problem with Cura 13.06.02 after updating from 12.11 on 2 machines runnging XP SP3.

Cura doesn't connect to the printer. Both COM-port and Baudrate to AUTO, but when running the "first time setup" it shows "Communication" ok, even states Communication State: operational but it can't get to the temperature and endstops test.

Actually, when you skip the checks it cannot connect to the printer because..:

"Failed to establish connection with the printer". Strange, because the Communication State shows operational.

What i tried:

- Disabled firewall

- Disabled anti-virus

- reinstalled Arduino COM driver

- Set port and baudrate manually

- Update firmware to Marlin 250000

- Updated Python from 2.7 to 3.3 (because of some other display probs - solved)

Cura 12.11 works perfectly on both machines while 13.06.2 doesn't, on both machines. So; what am i doing wrong, on both machines (besides running XP SP3)?

    Solution: don't test, just print.

    The UM connects fine with Cura 13.06.2, just the testing part is failing. Both COM settings in prefs to AUTO and go ahead. You can perform test procedures with a previous version like 12.11.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
