Having problems detecting the Arduino?: Checking things

RE: Having problems detecting the Arduino?: Checking things
I have had this issue and now have it resolved.
I deleted all of the eggbot files on my computer. I uninstalled the 64bit version of InkScape.
To fix the issue I installed the 32 bit version of Inkscape. Then I installed the EggBot Software: version 2.4.0. Once that was installed I changed the eggbot.py file as indicated here: http://forums.jjrobots.com/showthread.php?tid=1199. I then went into the device manager and changed the serial port to com 2 from com 17 for the Arduino Leonardo. At this point I rebooted the computer. After the reboot Inkscape recognized the Shero-O-Bot hardware and works.
I am running Windows 10 on an Intel I7 64bit with 32gb ram and an 8gb video card. The Shere-O-Bot hardware does not like the 64bit version of Inkskape and the eggbot.py python file needs to be replaced. Also make sure your serial port is below 4 or below on the com ports.
