Is there another freeware program for Power SDR and the Flex-3000 besides com0com?

I'm missing something...I'm unable to get com0com to install properly with PSDR and my F3K. I get 2 or 3 installation errors even uninstalling previous installs and everything else the program calls for before re-installing. I'm obviously doing something wrong, but what?

Tnx es 73

I tried to load it last night and couldn't get the 32 bit version to install. I'll give it another try and see what happens.

Thanks Paul

The 32-bit version will not work on 64-bit systems. So if you are using a 64-bit system you will need the 64-bit version and will need to purchase a license key. I believe it is $29.95 .This is to cover costs of signing driver. Works very well for me. Lots easier than com0com. I had forgotten about the charge for the 64-bit version.

VSPmanager is available by emailing Steve Nance K5FR.
you can find some documentation about it on the DDUtil wiki.
Last time I asked him for a copy I got an almost instant email response with the download link.

Google! turning OFF "driver signing" for your Operating system then try installing it using administrator privileges this is probely your problem, then try running VSPMGR http://k5fr.com/DDUtilV3wiki/index.ph...


JUST BE SURE BEFORE you install any other COM port program to REMOVE any virtual com ports then uninstall and reboot any other virtual COM program.

hope this does it for you

Jay & Bret,

I had multiple problems installing VSPMgr as well. I'm in the process of putting together an email to Steve showing the error screens I received...should have done that to begin with.  :^(

I've used VSPE by eterlogic for 3 years now on 64bit Windows7pro and have never
had any problems with it. 30 bucks have never been so well spent ;-)

Here's my setup for the Flex-3000:
