I have the Designer Version 7.A.0.8 STMicro.
I uploaded the STM32F407 FW to the board, that I downloaded from the website (did not build myself). When the server starts up (same version as designer) I can select from the dropdown (Change Connection) - USB - in the popup dialog I can see my board STM32F407 Discovery (115, 407), and the VID and PID Text boxes are populated . with aforementioned numbers. I click change and I still see Native as the selected board in the Output Tab. So I can't upload any designer projects as the designer can not see the board either. I have both USBs plugged in, CM1 at top of board to PC, and CM5 connected to same PC, I can see the Speaker (AWE Audio Class) in the speakers in device manager. Any ideas on how to fix this ?
