Computer is establishing a connection to the logger and initiating the download. Therefore, the correct Com Port is selected and the connecting cable is ok. However, it is not maintaining the connection long enough to complete it. This is more common with laptop computers due to power-saving features. Sometimes, persistence will lead to a successful launch or download. Rebooting the computer to clear out extraneous devices may help. If you are running an older version of SpecWare,  upgrading to the latest version may also help.  If this doesn't help, there may be an issue with the serial and/or COM port on your computer.  This can be checked by installing SpecWare on another machine (preferably a desktop machine) to execute the download.
