You must select the correct com port or else you are connecting to nothing. Your screen shots show you connected to COM4.

Also the correct com port will not show up if your flight controller is not connected to the PC.

COM4 could be some other device using a com port.

Anyhow, it sounds like you have a lot left to learn. Good luck in your adventure.

The standard Multiwii gui is in the MultiwiiConf directory in the Multiwii distribution.

The version has to match what's in your board, so if you haven't uploaded code it may have something else in it already.

The current release is 2.2.
