Jan and all other
IT IS WORKING NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
RRC-1258MKII remote to RRC-1258MKII radio , was perfect allready
RRC-Micro PC client to RRC-1258MKII radio + HRD controlling
ALL is working now just the way it should be.
 
First attempt didnt work see previous posting
How I solved it after installing the new firmware.
and HRD didnt found the rig
Unplug the RRC client
Restart windows xp (maybe not needed but it doesnt arm)
Plug in the RRC client

BUT very important is to restart the RRC-1258 MKII at the radio side
it is easy done.

Now HRD will startup/work with the radio,

restarted 20 times now and all is still working stable

Jan,

concerning your message

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\PORTS\0000\Device Parameters]
in a parameter called "PortName". If you have more than one port there should be one:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\PORTS\XXXX\Device Parameters]
per port. (XXXX=0000, 0001 etc)

This can be done easy and after a reboot the 3 UDP serials are installed ok in system, (with wrong comportnumbers but that we are aware of)

RRC-client to RRC-RADIO is OK but now with Vista-ultimate PC noway you can get HRD connecting the radio

Maybe others that have the problem with wrong serial numbers have more luck in vista
This PC is to complex with to many communication setups (programmers-virtual ports etc) that It might never work due installed software and drivers.
Most important was the XP-home eeepc PTT problem that has been solved with the latest (not public) release,
will check this weekend on vista laptop, when not needed for my wifes job.

Hope for a release that works with the ARCP-480 software from Kenwood, tried with different virtual port setups because arcp-480 cant connect to com2 since  it is in use by the RRC-CLIENT also tried with a bridge and splitter between them didnt solve the problem

And what are the symptoms of this failure? What does HRD show?

Have you checked Windows Event Log "Application" for records with source "1274Serial"? The "System" log might also show something. Suggest you clear the logs first, then attempt using the ports.

See attached image for what it might look like.

Hello Guy and Jan ,
1st posting here.
Reading with much intrest the writings about the COM Ports problem and there obviously high portnrs.
After purchasing only clients as we have servers on post I als, discovered that when installing a virtual port the SW
gave it a number somewhere around 15 or so. As I wanted to use the whole system within N1MM and with a remote prosistel rotor , and only have 1 COMport(PCI)in the "old" PC , I had to use a USB based serial adapter.
Within the configuration menu I could assign a lower nr than "9" as N1MM only uses 8 ports (as yet).I was aware that apparently all "ports" between 1 and 15 where "in use", hi.But choosing one in the single digits group e.g.8 was not creating a conflict and worked marvels.
Only my 5 EU cents ,hi.
Tnx Guys and Guy for the great input here,

Best of luck and I'll keep reading,
