|Thanks for the replies folks....|
The initial post was meant to be a Solution / Problem-Solved type item rather than request for assistance.
It's for folks that may be searching for a resolution to this particularly pesky version of the Code 39 error.
The link provided above is SIGNIFICANT in that is provides the solutions to multiple causes of that error (including the rarest one needing the DevCon utility)
Simply reinstalling the drivers and clearing the filters had not worked for me....and re-installing Windows was not an option for various reasons.
I was going crazy trying to figure out the problem....especially since all solutions implied that the filter-fix should work.....but it did.
So....for anyone else who may be going crazy with that Code 39 error after trying everything else....
...the link above, especially with the DevCon utility, may do the trick.
Hope this helps.
