    Nothing visible (like the notification that says "loading Drivers"), but USB Serial Port did show up in Device Manager.

    That's crazy. And you are using the large square USB-B port on the right?

    I have one more PC in the house - my wife's notebook - so I tried it, and it actually did load. I use all of my machines for embedded development, so I'm guessing that I have another driver loaded that conflicts with the 3D Systems driver.

    Anyway, when I went to print something, it tries to do it, but 3D Print status says "Unsupported Printer - Cube 3", and when I hit the print button on the Cube after the print file has been sent down, it says "Invalid Format".

    Enough of this. Microsoft is fighting me at every step.

    LOL! I did have one of those errors too and it came from my impatience where these files will crash into each other while processing and sending.

    Required a huge breath before I waited long enough. Very slow process. That is why I needed to see the file being sent.

    Brave soul you are taking on the wife's computer. Kudos!

    Because M$ treated this on a commerce level, the printer has its own 'server' assigned, best that I can tell. It has a specific 'port' created. Messing with that link is what blows up the driver. I suspect your embedded environment isn't creating this special port.

    Unsupported printer has nothing to do with anything other than a distraction. It is just a designation and doesn't seem to flag or trigger anything. It might flag a 3rd party app that they can't rely on the UI as I know we can't.

    Brave? Well she doesn't know (yet...)

    Yes, I think I did send twice because nothing seemed to be happening.

    Turns out the computer was wanting to reboot anyway because of a pending Windows update. After reboot it seems to be working. Now, I just have to figure out how to get away with her PC when I want to print...
