Windows Upload issues

I’m trying to set up PlatformIO on my work (Windows 10) installation. I have the basic Blink application that I set up and ran without issues on my personal Ubuntu laptop, but I’m unable to upload any changes from the Windows 10 machine. I keep getting this error: The semaphore timeout period has expired. I think this is related to the fact that I’m also seeing a notification dialog “The task ‘PlatformIO: Upload (esp32) (my_project)’ is already active”.

Has anyone seen something similar and have suggestions?
Thanks,
Craig

It appears I was missing having the right device driver installed. While sometimes it struggles to upload without a timeout, I’ve stopped seeing the semaphore timeouts. I’m clearly spoiled by my days with Linux :slight_smile:
