Firmware 2.90 with Win-Test and Winkey
« on: 2016-04-16, 15:21:21 »
One of our users upgraded to 2.90 and his Winkey emulation stopped working. Win-Test gave the error
message that Winkey (in his case COM8) was not recognized. Downgrading to 2.87 fixed the problem.

He is using Windows 7. I found the following in a long thread:
http://www.remoterig.com/forum/index.php?topic=4558.msg21340#msg21340
but it seems to indicate that this is a specific Windows 10 problem.

Thanks,

That sounds very strange. The only difference regarding Winkey was sending the "done" message a little later than in 2.87.
Always include type of hard/software and version when asking for support.

I'm using 2.89 on the RRC Control and 2.87 at RRC Radio.
Upgrading from 2.87 to 2.89 solved my CW issues with N1MM+ and sometimes with Win-Test, now N1MM+ and Win-Test are working OK.
Will try an upgrade to 2.90 and see if there are any issues.

Upgraded both RRCs, control & radio to 2.90 and there are  no issues.
Win-Test and N1MM+ are working as expected.

Thanks for your tests and feedback.

I suspect it may be a problem with him using an older version of the drivers from Setup
Manager. I will ask him to make a complete deinstall and reinstall using the newest version.
