Default Pro Tools Express "Unable to Locate Hardware" on startup

Just as the title says

I have installed and reinstalled Pro tools and the latest drivers for my Mbox mini 2.

Windows 10 recognizes the mbox (it appears in the device manager and is usable as an audio output source).

Any thoughts as to why pro tools isn't making the connection?

Solutions I have tried (will keep updating as I go):
- Switching from USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 port (then reinstalling the drivers)
- Reinstalling Drivers
- Reinstalling Pro Tools
- Disabling USB power saving settings
