Hello evil mad scientists. I just completed putting together an original Eggbot and I was attempting to set-up the pen position. When I applied the preset positions I received this message:Traceback (most recent call last):File “eggbot.py”, line 1406, in <module>e.affect()File “C:Program FilesInkscapeshareextensionsinkex.py”, line 268, in affectself.effect()File “eggbot.py”, line 314, in effectself.EggbotOpenSerial()File “eggbot.py”, line 1299, in EggbotOpenSerialself.serialPort = self.getSerialPort()File “eggbot.py”, line 1356, in getSerialPortfor strComPort in eggbot_scan.findEiBotBoards():File “C:Program FilesInkscapeshareextensionseggbot_scanwin32.py”, line 6, in findEiBotBoardshKey = _winreg.OpenKey( hReg, r”SYSTEMCurrentControlSetEnumUSBVID_04D8&PID_FD92″ )WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specifiedI am not sure what this means or what to try and do about it. Help?August 24, 2015 at 2:48 pm #22282
That’s no good! The error is spelled out in the last two lines there — it looks like there is some serious problem communicating over USB to the EggBot. (Something along the lines of “Open USB? File not found!”)I have not seen this exact error before. I’ll see if I can find a solution.However, in the meantime you might try restarting, and I have a few questions for you:Do you have any unusual USB devices (other serial devices) or software (e.g., anti-malware) that could be preventing access to the USB port?Can you please say which version of Windows you are using?And, did you run the EggBot installer version 2.5.0?August 24, 2015 at 2:58 pm #22283JennParticipant
Restarting as in uninstalling and reinstalling the software?I do not currently have any other USB devices hooked up to my computer. My computer does have the free version of Malwarebytes installedWindows 7 Professional 32-bitI ran the EggBot installer from this download: Download EggBot_250A.exeAugust 24, 2015 at 3:16 pm #22284
Thank you for the info– that all sounds sane.I had only meant to try restarting the computer. (Sometimes in Windows-land, that solves problems.)If you are able to, please try temporarily disabling Malwarebytes before plugging in the EggBot. It may block access to the USB port. If it does turn out to be the issue, please check its settings, to see if you can allow USB port access.If that does not help, I would suggest to try installing the previous version of the EggBot software (2.4.0). You can find it here: https://github.com/evil-mad/EggBot/releases/tag/v2.4.0August 26, 2015 at 1:03 pm #22285
Have you been able to make any progress on this? (I do have a couple of other things that you might try, depending on how those things turned out.)
