Here is a problem Jan Anders, an FAE, had.
His 4 ports of the FlashPro5 showed up in his Device Manager. But still the "SmartFusion2 KickStart Board Tester" utility would not automatically connect to the 3rd of the 4 ports. And even when he selected that port, it would not connect. How did he fix that?

Driver install/uninstall over several years had caused orphaned ports that interfered with the selection of the real port. The solution was to use regedit to clear all reserved ports as per :
After this he un-installed and re-installed the FTDI drivers (that can be found on teh KickStart board page).
I did not do this myself, but just in case someone else out there runs into this problem, I post his solution.
Also, remember that if the KickStart utility fails to run, you may have to install .NET Framework 4.5.2. (and re-power your board)
