    Run the program with your radio running. I had the same problem and when the radio was running the program installed without incident.

    Be sure that you have your firewall and anti-virus disabled, and try again.

    Thanks Dudley and Jim, since I had already tried reloading, rebooting and the firewall/antivirus programs off, I turned the radio on and gave Jim's suggestion a try and it worked great. So now I'm back on the air.
    Only one issue left to figure out. Using cat I created 4 COM ports which all work OK. However they do not show up in "device Manager" even with "show hidden devices" enabled. Anyone have any idea about this problem?
    Anyway, thanks again Jim.  73  Al   N4AB

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.
