If it still does not work, then provide the info and error logs.
    it was already picked. and nothing else there to pick from.
    At least this version seems to be opening and closing properly. at least so far.

    It looks like it is not finding the device by it's index which is interesting if it was in the list to pick. That device not found is being reported by the FTDI driver. I am going to add a bit more logging and make one other change, but this is very weird.

    Let's give build #904 a try. I would like to see the error and the info logs after you try it to see all the info related to it.

    Look for a ".lock" file in your profile directory and delete it.

    I'll also suggest that if you're using Windows 10, turn off User Account Control. It can easily cause some weird, unexpected things involving temporary files that should be erased upon closing an app, but they remain because UAC blocks the deletion....
