Hi Everyone,

 

I wish all are safe and healthy.

I started playing with the Farmbeats for students kit to try to become ans instructor, but ahve not been able to data stream from the RPi to MS Excel with the provided instructions in the kit.

The Prolific driver for the serial to USB port connection was not installing correctly, but finally it did to port com7: 

When try to data stream in Excel, a message stated that the connection was already used by another device, and thus unable to stream data.

Please help me get this resolved and move forward. It is a real interest that I will like to advance as much as I can.

Thank You! in advance,

 

Ricardo
