Recognized by OS, but not by Flirc software

I purchased my Flirc in May of 2013. Originally I planned to use it with XBMC, but about the same time I installed it - and it did work - I switched to Plex and a full wireless keyboard. 

 

Now I have gone back to XBMC and would like to be able to use my Harmony Ultimate One remote exclusively to navigate. So, I dusted off the Flirc and tried to get it working. 

 

Unfortunately, the Flirc is recognized by the OS (as a  libusbK USB device) but the Flirc software does not see it. It simply says 'disconnected' in the bottom right of the software, and and says "Please connect flirc".

 

This is occurring after reboots, and on two separate machines. 

 

The OS on both machines is Windows 7, 64-bit.

 

Suggestions?

 

Thanks for any guidance or help.

FIXED!!

 

A complete n00b error - I apologize.

 

Apparently ESET NOD32 was blocking communications. After disabling it temporarily, I was able to communicate with Flirc, update the firmware, and configure a XBMC map with my Harmony Ultimate One. I then saved the config on my network, went to the HTPC system, disabled the NOD32 temporarily, loaded the driver, and loaded the custom config I had saved. 

 

I also learned that Flirc will not work when plugged into a USB 3.0 port, only a USB 2. So, I had to relocate my external DAC to a USB 3 port, and it works fine there.
