How to select in VESC Tool the COM port of PC for USB connection to VESC6?

Another try at a better place (I hope):

Hallo all,

How to select in VESC Tool the COM port of PC for USB connection to VESC6?

Menu connection: Port "COM1" is the only port shown. Clicking button "refresh serial port list" results in nothing new, only COM1.

The last working connection was shown as COM6, but after successful running motor wizzard the tool lost connection when I tried to select the control input. (Should be ADC, wired potentiometer.)

Regards, Günter

On linux or mac, for me if the serial port doesn't show in the list in vesc tool after scanning. it's because the operating system doesn't see it. For me that's been bad serial cable causing the vesc to disconnect among other things.

Thank you,

I'm not sure this will be the reason, because I had success earlier with the same cable. But I'll replace it and try again.
