Thank you !

After driver is re-installed, go back to the top and retry the diagnostics link and continue below.

Otherwise local port maybe blocked by internet security settings.

Please check the following (or let us know):
(Ask IT person)
As far as just Windows Firewall is concerned,
Outbound: TCP and UDP should be allowed on port 1947

This should get you through to the key but if you still have difficulty seeing the key you must check on internet security watching the outbound on port 1947 - so you may want to disable the suspect security software.
