|Target Version||Fixed in Version||22.214.171.1242|
|Summary||0001821: MSCOMM32 component no longer supported|
Windows Version:Win 10 64-bit
HRD Version: 126.96.36.1990
Yaesu G-1000dxc + EA4TX rotor controller
Microsoft do not support MSCOMM32 any more which the EA4TX requires to function correctly.
EA4TX has now used COMM32 in Eltima control software which when a Virtual COM port is assigned HRD doesn't see it. Therefore the Rotor software in HRD will not function. Can you liase with EA4TX Pablo to establish what can be done in HRD to enable 2700 users potentially updateing to Win10 to be able to use the Rotor feature in HRD. Pablo is www.ea4tx.com.

Excerpt from EA4TX:-
MSCOMM32 is a Microsoft module but unfortunately Windows 10 don’t support this component. Sincerely I cannot understand the reason since this ActiveX has worked Ok with previous O.S. as Windows 7 or 8.1 but Microsoft has decided not to support it anymore.
During last weeks I have been looking for a solution and today we can announce that a new ARSVCOM V6.5 was released with a new ActiveX that is supported and works fine in Windows 10. This new ActiveX is not free or cheap, but it is the only solution that I could find
MSCOMM32 component has been very popular for developers so it’s possible you will detect that some more program that uses a communication port will not work under Windows 10.
