Make sure your device is in DFU mode (blinking yellow), and that your computer is online.

GOT IT TO BREATHE CYAN @Moors7 @kennethlimcp @peekay123 @ScruffR CLAIMED THE DEVICE. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Problem was with openssl all along, I have never installed it. After installing it, I had to manually change path to the openssl directory. Then i ran particle keys doctor . Device restarted and connected to cloud!!! Thank you again!!!

The issue is when your clients have an existing SSID with spaces that you cannot change, nor request them to use “_” instead.

Are you sure, as it seems the OP’s issue was resolved without changing the SSID - please don’t “spam” unrelated threads - I’ve replied on two other posts of yours.
