Summary0001821: MSCOMM32 component no longer supported

Radio Mfgr.:Yaesu
Radio Model:FT-2000

HRD Version:
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.

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.
