So, I want to use the workbench on my laptop to scan a lon network that I am connected to via echelon usb plugged into my laptop.
is there a trick in getting the lonworks service under tools menu of workbench to recognize my USB lon adapter? I have looked at the property sheet of service and it is looking at LON1 which is right, but in device manager screen the Local Lon Device's state remains as "unknown"
If I run a station on the laptop, the adapter is recognized with no issues.

I do not want to start a station, I just want to use the workbench as a quick scanning tool.
Is there any docs explaining the use of lonworks service under tools menu?
