ncDeviceOpen problems

Hi,
I successfully installed the NCSDK in API-only mode on a custom platform (x86-64) and ran the examples. However, from time to time, I get the following errors upon opening the connection with the device:

W: [         0] ncDeviceOpen:533    failed to find device

ncDeviceOpen Failed [-2]: Could not open the device.

and

E: [         0] dispatcherEventSend:730 Write failed -4

Hello NCS! Device opened normally.
Goodbye NCS!  Device Closed normally.
NCS device working.

It seems like when switching from USB2.0 to USB3.0 it gets stuck.
This happens both using the hello_ncs_cpp example and the python examples from the ncappzoo. After a few tries the examples start, other times (more commonly) the examples starts right away.

Notes:

  • This problem emerged using both the Movidius Neural Compute Stick and the UP AI Core.
  • The USB connection is provided by an internal USB hub.

What could be the possible cause of this behaviour?

    For future reference: I uninstalled the ncsdk 2.05.00.02 and installed the 1.12.00.01. Now everything works correctly.
