i have my gs components installed and i can get things going on my desktop computer but not my laptop. i have a 2 week old fc40. my laptop doesn't have com ports. or so it says. they are clear on my desktop. i tried to create a com port but that didn't get recognized by the gs software. i am using windows vista with ie8. would an upgrade to windows 8 make a difference? i spent all night last night trying to get the com port on my laptop. help. thanks.
