Putty 'Open' button on serial issue

Got my onion in the mail today, super stoked. I followed the 'Getting Started' tutorial and got to the use putty to open a serial communication part and when I click 'Open' it just makes the windows error sound and does nothing.
Hi @Vega_Radeau, here are a few things to check for:
- Did you install the driver for the USB to serial?
- Were you able to detect the COM port in Computer Management after you plugged in the Omega?
Hello, yes and yes. If I type mode into the command line it returns COM3, which is assigned the omega device but with None for all the properties and 1200 for baud rate.
@Vega_Radeau The baud rate should be 115200. That should be the reason why you are not able to access the device.
Please let me know this helps.
Hmm, thanks for your help so far. I get to the 'Step 4.' in the 'Setting up using Command Line – Windows' part of the getting stated guide (https://wiki.onion.io/Get-Started).
And then when I hit 'Open', I get a windows error sound.
nevermind, I am a noob. I was in the wrong window
@Vega_Radeau This is super strange! Can you try downloading the driver again from the official Silicon Labs website: https://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx. Perhaps they have upgraded the driver?
Which version of Windows are you using?
For anybody still getting this issue, I fixed it on my LAUNCHXL-F82069M board by making sure I had selected 'Serial' on the Session tab, entering the correct COM port on the port line, and correct baud rate. Then, Putty opens the terminal correctly on the Serial tab.
