You DO have the USB driver installed, correct?

Take a look here and scroll down to the SmoothStepper section and perhaps read thru the installation document, it's great.

Greg at Warp9 helped me solve the problem.  Had to uninstall the driver (He sent me a file location to do so.) and then reinstall.  Deleting the file thru normal windows routines did not work.  All is well now.

Thanks Andrew, Jeff,

 I have swapped over computers at the moment but will see to it when I swap back.
