It says that it can't open the port. I have tried all of the port selections that I have and it won't work. I am so frustrated since now that I spent hours on the phone with the cable internet provider, the router people and the printer people, I can't use my wishblade again.gRRR I have the most current Creat and Cut software and I am using Windows 7.

If you are still receiving the error this indicates that you may have a port conflict. Fixing a port conflict is as
simple as changing ports.
