intersense with 5DT glove

I tried connecting my 5DT glove to my system to run the turbine demo, but can't seem to get the system to recognize the intersense connected to the glove. I'm almost positive that this worked last time I tried (months, maybe years ago).

The glove intersense port is the same one I've always used (port 3), and I'm pretty sure I hooked up all of the cables correctly. The intersense from the HMD can't be interfering somehow, can it? I can't remember ever having to disconnect it.

Here's my error message (I realize that this time it also didn't connect to PPT, but I'm not having that problem anymore); any thoughts? Thanks!

What happens when you just try a simple script connecting to the intersense. If you look through the device manager you'll see which COM ports are available. Verifiy that you have a COM port 3 and set the PORT_INTERSENSE variable to 3 before you add the intersense
import viz

isense = viz.add('intersense.dls')
If that does not work and you have other COM ports showing up try changing the PORT_INTERSENSE variable to the other values.

If you are still not able to connect check to see that you can connect to your intersense software.

Thanks. When I went back and connected the glove a second time, the intersense inexplicably worked. I'll see how it goes for now.
