More info ---
When I tried to reinstall the error message is RRC Micro: Critical Error -- Error: object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Dave,

Which version are you using? I am sure Roland needs this to be able to answer you. I know that
the latest one resolved some Win 8.1 compatibility issues.

We have noticed this problem on one more installation (a Dell computer) and continues to investigate what's causing it.
The installation goes without any problems on most Win8.1 pc's but apparently not on some others.  As a note the software
is in fact developed on a Win 8.1 pc now.

We are working on solving the problem.

Thanks for the reply --

I wonder if installing Windows 8.1 professional would help -- I did try a later and current version of the installation software with the same results.  An interesting note is that on one of the installations the software performed as it should but on a restart the error occurred -- Interesting??????  I did have this software performing as it should on this laptop with Windows 8 and when I upgraded to Windows 8.1 the error occurred.

The saga continues with a bright outcome -- Once again I tried to install the RRC-Micro but first I went to the Micro setup driver folder and tried to install the Virtual com port -- Before when I tried I was unsuccessful and received an interupt error --  this time the install was completed and so I then tried to install the RRC-Micro program and all went as it should -- The program is now functioning and seems to retain its settings --

Thanks for the info.

There is something fishy with Windows 8.1 and the serial port drivers
which we continue to investigate.

Great to hear that you got it working
