Com Ports Missing yet again
I have had issues with com ports in the past and using Tim's procedures, I managed to resolve them. This time, however, I can't seem to fix them.
This morning my Windows 10 computer failed to turn on. it seemed dead. Unplugging and replugging power corrected that. the green pwr supply came on and it booted normally. SSDR works fine. However, all my comports were corrupted. This time I cannot resolve it.
I first right clicked 'remove' in CAT and reset Flex VSP Ports. All the ports were then gone from CAT. I used Tim's procedure to remove ports from Windows and ran Tim's "Resetting the CAT.settings file. I removed the Cat.settings file. I also rebooted after every action. CAT came up with COM4 and Port 5002 as expected. However, I cannot add ports nor save or edit Port 4. I get the message "The virtual serial port (VSP) failed to create. Double check the serial port settings".
I have tried this at least six times now, removing ports in Windows, removing the CAT.settings file. I cannot get CAT to properly create com ports. Even the Flex Control knob is not working. I tried looking at 'log' for com4 and it is blank. In Windows Dev mgr, only com port 3 shows up.
Second question, Under "other devices", Fabula_Tech_VirtualPort 3, 5, 6, 103, 105 and 106 are present. What are these for? Previously, this Fabula showed up as port 3 under ports when all was working well.
Sorry this is so long. I am at wits end. Many Thanks, Jim KD1I
