can you describe what you’ve tried? does it show up in device manager at all? is it possible the hardware is damaged?
i’ve been seeing your messages occasionally but it doesn’t really help to keep posting the same thing without any info

it shows up in device manager, yes. The FC Server can't see the board though. adafruit won't replace it as it's out of warranty by a few years; my coworker gave this board to me and originally it worked
on PC, I was using processing, and the server was visible and reacting to processing. Now the server isn't available and from windows, I don't know how to configure it. I suppose that would be the first step but I'm a noob and don't know what to do to configure the json in windows

I'll get it all hooked up shortly and provide pics of what I see if that helps

yeah, you’ll want to know 1) is the device that you’re seeing the bootloader or the regular fc device, and 2) does windows have a driver loaded
fadecandy uses the generic WinUSB driver which should load automatically, but you can try doing this part manually
there’s a utility called Zadig that might come in handy if that turns out to be the problem
