CAT Ports Disappeared Again - Can't resolve this time.
Out of the blue, my CAT ports disappeared. I had a problem about 8 weeks ago in which the ports were scrambled and there were many unused ports and was able to delete all the many CAT ports in Windows thanks to Tim's procedure. I created new ports starting with VSP 4 and life was good.
This time, all the ports just disappeared in the CAT tool and none of the APPS would communicate. i tried to just delete then as before but this time is very different. I deleted the ports in Windows using Tim's procedure but I could not then recreate new ports. When I tried to save VSP4, I received an error message: "The virtual serial port (VSP) failed to create. Double check serial port settings."
Using another of Tim's procedures, How to Reassociate CAT ports with Virtual Serial Ports, I reset FlexVSP drivers and then followed the "Resetting the CAT.settings file by deleting the CAT.settings file. I rebooted all and then the CAT tool comes up with com4 and TCP port 5002 as I would expect. However, even though the CAT tool shows a com4, Windows and Logger32 do not 'see' com4. Also, when I try to add a port using the CAT tool, it will not allow this. it does not index to a higher number port. If I try to just save com4, it gives me the error message: "The virtual serial port (VSP) failed to create. Double check the serial port numbers".
I am really at the limit of my knowledge here and not sure which way to go. I have been able to resolve CAT port issues in the past but not this time. Many Thanks, Jim KD1I
