Another BLE112 Evaluation Board problem

Dear Forum Users,
I recently purchased the BLE112 Development Kit Including the Evaluation Board and so on. I've read some articles in this Forum about the setup of a basic connection between a Computer using the USB dongle and the Board. Unfortunately I am still not able to make a connection. Therefore I am now going to explain the things I tried to make a connection. Please respond, if you know where my problem is or if you can help me somehow.

The First thing I did was to connect the Evaluation-board with the CC Debugger and the CC Debugger to the Computer. After that I downloaded SmartRF Flash Programmer. With this programm I downloaded the latest Firmware and actualized the Firmware on the Board. It now shows Version 0041. I am disconnecting the CC Debugger from the Computer and the Evaluation Board. When I turn on Board which is powered by a battery, it now starts the Demo Programm. The Display tells me the internal Chip temperature. So far for getting the Evaluationboard to work.

After this I plugged the USB Dongle into my Computer. My Operating System is Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. As told in the Manual, I downloaded the Software development Kit and Installed the Dongle. It now shows up in the Device Manager as Bluegiga Bluetooth Low Energy (Com4). Exactly as it has to be.

Now I start the blegui2.exe in the bin folder of the Software Development Kit. I select the Bluegiga Bluetooth Low Energy Port ant Attach it. The Attaching Process Works without any Problems.
At last I push the START Button with the default options from the Startup. Now the Device should be Displayed in the Right Hand Window. But It's not there.
In the log Section the Following Lines appear:
2013.08.20 22:18:11.0144 ble_cmd_gap_discover mode: 1
2013.08.20 22:18:11.0144 TX: 0001060201
2013.08.20 22:18:11.0144 ble_rsp_gap_discover result: 0 ['No Error']
2013.08.20 22:18:11.0144 RX: 000206020000

But the log is more Interesting, when I Push the Refresh-Button on the right-hand bottom-Corner. Then the following is Displayed in the Log:
2013.08.20 22:19:42.0134 ble_cmd_system_get_connections
2013.08.20 22:19:42.0134 TX: 00000006
2013.08.20 22:19:42.0144 ble_rsp_system_get_connections maxconn: 1
2013.08.20 22:19:42.0144 RX: 0001000601
2013.08.20 22:19:42.0144 ble_evt_connection_status connection: 0 flags: 0 address:000000000000 address_type: 0 conn_interval: 0 timeout: 0 latency: 0 bonding:ff
2013.08.20 22:19:42.0144 RX: 80100300000000000000000000000000000000ff

This look very Close to the log appearing when a connection has worked. The differences are, that no address is Displayed. So my question is, what is my Problem, that the Communication to the Board is not working correctly. As I already described, I think I've done a correct Setup of the Board and the Dongle. Several things also proove It. So I don't really see any Problem. But please tell me there is one, and that I can solve It!

PS.: Please forgive me my spelling and grammar Mistakes. English is a foreign Language to me.

you guys can't Imagine how happy I am right now. I finally found the ble112 Chip in the Blegui2.exe. I will tell you, how I did it.

First of all, I downloaded the Application Note: BGDemo Example File from the Techforum of the Bluegiga website. There I found some Information about compiling and installing Demo Files to the BLE112. After doing so and restarting the BLE112 Chip, I finally found it in the BLEgui2.exe. This means, that the Temperature Demo programm didn't manage to set the BLE112 into advertising Mode and Therefore being visible in the Bluetooth Network. I assume a mistake appeared while debugging the Temperature Demo to the BLE112. And that was the reason for not working properly.

After all I am very happy, that I finally found the Chip in the Blegui2.exe and that I can start with programming It.
This Forum is very great and I hope that more users will discover it and post their Problems and Solutions.
