"ready for connection"

I upgraded to Win 7 and downloaded dashboard 1.61.
Windows sees the drobo and contents.

DB give the title statement. Pc and Drobo have been powercycled.

Now what?

The first thing I’d do is uninstall 1.6.1 and download and install either 1.6.6 or 1.6.7

I can say for a fact that Drobo Dashboard 1.6.6 is running fine on my Windows 7 Professional x64 machine with Drobo connected via USB.
