first change usb ports for the workbench device, and make sure that the driver installs
try downloading the firmware, on it's own: http://line6.com/software/
and then flash from file.
it also might not hurt to plug in a 1/4" plug, as some older firmwares required to wake the variax.

When you say "Change USB Ports" do you mean to simply move the USB cord to another USB port? I have several USB 2 ports on the back of my machine and two on the front (I also have two USB 3 ports). I was connected to the USB on the front when the upgrade failed. The "PC Side" of the USB interface is always green, but no matter which USB port I use, the Red light stays on on the Guitar side.
When I plug the USB port into my PC, I don't see any indication of drivers being loaded, but I do hear Windows "tone" that usually indicates that a USB device has been connected (Same tone I hear when I plug in my phone, Tablet or Ipod). Is there anything more I ned to do as far as USB drives are concerned?
I can download the firmware, but if the the guitar side of the USB port refuses to glow green, can I install the firmware at all?
I've downloaded the firmware ( TylerVariax_1.90.vxf ), but When I tell Monkey to install from file, it is looking for a vuf file.

yes i meant plug into a different port on your machine.
you might check the device manager to see if th drivers reinstalled.... or you could probably reboot to make sure.
have you plugged a 1/4" jack into the JTV? some older firmwares required it...
not sure about the expected file extension, but if you got it from this site it's surely the correct file.

I contacted Line 6 and it turns out that the cable from the Line6 USB port to my guitar was bad. I had only used it once or twice before, but they are sending me sa new one. IN the mean time I was able to use a standard ethernet cable to get it all updated.
One odd thing was that after I upgraded the software, I had to disconnect both cords and remove the battery, then reconnect the guitar cord and install the battery before it worked right.
