CAT program not seeing ports

Paul Member
edited June 2020 in SmartSDR CAT
CAT is not showing any ports in the "Connect to 3rd Party" list. I have rebooted, done peer to peer, removed, installed and several other tries with no help. Any one else have this issue Paul, KE5ZW

    I have worked on this with many installs and uninstalls and reboots and CAT does not work anymore. I show Flex vitual port 4/14 in device manager but CAt does not show comport for third party programs after all the work!

    To solve this issue, just delete Smart CAT and re-install it. Delete any and ALL CAT off your computer desk top. If you try to do a fix CAT; that does not do it either. I have become an expert in this area: HRD force me to do this several times.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
