connect error to mini

Changing monitoring state from ‘Offline’ to ‘Opening serial port’
Connecting to: COM6 with baudrate: 115200 (configured)
Unexpected error while connecting to serial port: COM6 SerialException: ‘could not open port ‘COM6’: WindowsError(5, ‘Access is denied.’)’ @
Found no ports to try for auto detection

this is the error log from cura. looked at device manager and com6 is 115200 like cura.

Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)

To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.

I get this in device manager under portable devices lulzbot.

changed out cable just to be sure that was not the problem… seems that my new computer is not letting me access to that port… any help

had to get a trial copy of serial port monitor. found that some software was using the com6 port… had nothing i knew of running. had done multipule restarts. went into task manager and started to really looked at the details section and found repetier server running in background. killed it and serial monitor worked. sure enough cura connected right up no trouble. hope this helps someone with access denied.

Thanks for figuring it out and reporting back
