for some reason my connection between my ultimaker and my laptop seems to be unstable.

when i try to get past the first run wizard in cura 12.07. i am able to connect to my ultimaker and upload the firmware

but when i try to connect for testing it seems to lack connection from time to time.

this problem happens randomly but on a high rate. about 4 out of 5 times when i try to connect to my ultimaker.

im using windows vista as operating system

    Do you see any exceptions in the console window?

    You can also try setting the baudrate from AUTO to 250000 in the preferences. The AUTO baudrate is new in the latest version and is causing some problems on some systems (but not on all, making it harder to track down)

    seemed to have been a problem with the auto-detection of the com port i use on my laptop (com11).

    everything seems to be fine for now. going to try my first print the next day.
