Faulty Vampire V2 (green) After Core Update 2.11

Hi guys, after some months, yesterday I've decided to upgrade the core of my vampire. I own a green one version. The last time I've updated it, the core was the 2.9 and during the time I've always used the exe from the workbench.
  Now, yesterday the first time I've run the exe of the gold core 2.11 I've got a message that was about "the card can't be flashed". I've run again the exe and the flashing started, no errors. After the power off and the power on the card wasn't detected anymore.
  Now the question is: can I make it work again flashing with a usb blaster?
  The vampire green version has some limit? This card is one of the first batch sold on amybay from Majista.
  Thank you for your help

Yeah, you will need a blaster.
