Default ICOM - ISTA-D/ISTA-P "Connect" grayed out

All, I'm sure some of you must have run into this issue but I could not really find it via search.

I had a full setup on my laptop from before but it died so now i have a new dell that I have setup wth the latest ISTA D/P versions and have got most of the setup done.

If i connect the ICOM A2 via ethernet/LAN, I can get as far as clicking on vehicle identification but then I see a screen which displays all the connected devices, and it even shows KL.15 voltage from the car on it and I can see it changing and the ICOM A2 green LED flashing overtime its reading the voltage.

But I can never get the connect button at the bottom to become clickable meaning it stays grayed no matter how/where I click or select the connected device. So i cannot read the vehicle VIN etc and start using the tool.

Any guidance what step I might have missed in the setup?

Much Appreciated!

If ISTA is loading up to the vehicle ident page (with VCI properly set to ENET Local Area Network and IP's infos reflecting your ICOM address ) i will check the ICOM firmware. May be it needs a firmware update. I run ISTA-D 4.10.20 on ICOM A2 application firmware 1.40.06 and boot version 1.25.03 on W10 without any problems.
