Default Not again! Another person habing com (and kebyord) pronlems

I am at the point where the engine is ready to run on my 99 project with an enhanced ms2, i had not used my registered tuner studio for a few months since the last time i worked on my na that has a ms1 pnp.
When i started the program got the window prompting me to update the software to 2.5.05 and i did and the continued with the start up instructions for the enhanced ms2 selecting the ecu definitions emailed by Dimitris and everithing was fine until i got to the "test com port" section; Well i could not connect to the new enhanced ms2, so this is what i have tried so far:

-I updated the old usb adapter driver that i have used previously.
-Got and installed a new usb adapter and drivers
-Changed usb to com2 from com9
-Selected auto find devises on tuner studio and it did not detect the ecu
-Connected the rs232 cable directly to the rs232 plug on my laptop docking station com1 and attempted to connect to the ecu without success.
- I also took the laptop to where i store my na that has an ms1 pnp and connected it to the ecu and tuner studio is not able to find the ms1, i have used tuner studio on this ecu many times (3 months ago was the last time i did)

Well i don't know what i am doing wrong here but would greatly appreciate any and all the help i can get.

Thanks

Sounds like maybe you're not using the right COM port if you can't connect via RS-232 directly or the serial drivers are f'd up.

I did and there was an issue with the usb adapter that i have been using for a long time so i downloaded a new driver for it and atempted to install it without sucsess, i then purchasd a new adapter and the drivers and that installed ok, but it would still not connect to either ecu.
I have a friend coming this evening with the laptop that he uses for tuning his ms2, unfortunatley (for me) his ms has a usb connection so we will be out of luck if the problem is the adapter. He was a computer repair guy at best buy when in college so i hope fhat he may be able to figure out if there is anything else wrong that is the problem.

Not to sound like a smart *** but did you turn the key on? Sometimes it's the little things.....

Bahurd you have a very good point, i have done things like that in the past but i did have the ignition on this time and that brings up another issue i have, my fuel pump runs all the time when the ignition is on, was expecting it to run for just a few seconds and go off so i hooked up my battery charger to make sure that the bat voltage did not drop too much.

Fail again this evening with my friend and his computer, i supose that what i will do next is to buy a new tuning cable from dyi and see if i can find a pnp extension harness (any sugjestions?) so i can get the ms from under the dash to see if it is runing some how, i know that it is getting power because the wideband powers when the ignition is turned on and it gets power from the ms

in the device manager ( How To Access Device Manager From the Control Panel in Windows 7 ) on the usb to serial does it show a triangle or anything? Error code 10 is a big deal on a lot of cheaper usb to serial devices, I've got a collection of drivers that fix it for windows 7 and windows 8.

The windows automatic drivers is broken for them, every time you plug in the device it will download their driver and break it. Which is why I kept having the issue even after installing a known working driver.

Worked with Dimitris today and it apears that there may be an issue with the MS so i got it out of the car and ordered the harness extension $$$$ ouch!!
He also sujgested i plug in the oem ecu to see if it is working and the car srarted up right away and run at idle, i was pretty surprised because i have id1000 injectors and no mass air flow sensor but at least know that the gm coils and injectors are ok and the engine has good oil press etc after a complete rebuild.
I will be doing some testing of the ms when i get the instructions.

Am I the only one seeing the irony of the communications problem when there's barely a coherent sentence in this thread?

Is it politically correct as a German to post such pictures... ;-)
