BTW. I have a feeling that although the driver seems to be installed its not actually working

Try removing the driver and re-installing it

The issue has been reported just from Czech HAMs so I've thought that is caused by Localisation setting (decimal pointer - dot or coma) - mostly typical issue on some SW running in Czech localization environment.i

So I've changed localisation from Czech to US, removed driver, rebooted windows, re-install CPS including the driver but still no change. When I used putty to see responce from radio when sending character "C" - radio replied by "-". BTW redio responses by "-" for any character. Putty has been set to 9600 and also to 115200 baud.

I'm using Win7 32 bit.

OK2GMO reported me that he switched Win10 to English, removed comercial CPS and uninstall the driver, reboted, installed last comunity CPS including the driver and finaly is able to read/write the radio.

So there is a question - 64bit is needed or Win7 is not supported?

OK

I use this code

https://github.com/rogerclarkmelbourne/ ... pDiWrap.cs

To find the serial port with a specific name

I suspect that

Code: Select all

			System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex friendlyNameToComPort =
				new System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex(@".? \((COM\d+)\)$");
Is not working because of the localisation

I'm not an expert in regular expressions e.g.

Code: Select all

.? \((COM\d+)\)$
But this page has a list of the symbols

https://www.cheatography.com/davechild/ ... pressions/

I think its supposed to be searching for a USB device with the name (COMXX) in it, where XX is a number

Perhaps in some locals the name of the COM port is different ??

Regexp looks OK - it's looking for COM and one or more digit(s).

Thanks.

I think the guys who have the problem of the COM port not being found, need to post the exact text that they see.
