Guys,
Here is my Configure file with VSPE.
For some reason, when I open ESDR I get the error message Failed to open Serial Port COM5.
I don't understand why this is happening.
Plus, the software is not communicating with my SPE 1.3KL FA Amp.
Needless to say I am very confused.
Within ESDR2 I want com port 5 and com port 9 for transmit.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Where is your configuration file? It does not appear to have come with your post. instead take pictures of the VSPE GUI and ESDR2 CAT tab settings and post those. Also compare them with the UMA in case you spot the error(s) first.

Eric,
Here are pictures of my config.vspe.
New to the snipping tool format.
Hopefully, you can read these.

Eric,
If you can't view the snips.
I have duplicated the format on page 9 of the UMA and also added Serial Redirector from 1 to 6 on page 11

Hello Mark,

No, I do not see any pictures. Must be my eyesight. Too many Teamviewer sessions I expect. So, I'll post some pictures for you instead. Maybe they will help or else you can tell me what else you are trying to achieve that the shown configuration does not cover.

So this is the basic configuration if you are using only RX1 and have a CAT controlled amplifier that is not getting data via TCI and SDC. You can tell if the loaded configuration is valid by virtue of the status which will be either 'OK' or 'Ready'.

In ESDR2, the CAT tab should look like

As described in the UMA, have Windows load VSPE with the correct configuration at boot. ESDR2 must not load until afterwards.

So, back to you for what still goes wrong, if anything. Hopefully nothing.

Erik.

Eric,
I deleted every hint of VSPE and then reinstalled everything again.
I used your Config file example.
I get OK on everything.
But when I load ESDR2 and click on settings. I have the same picture on the ECATV1 screen.
Yet when I enable the cat for com 5 I get the error message Failed to open serial port COM5.
Here's a question, when I open device manager and click on Ports, Com and Lpt I only see COM port 1
Should I not see Com Port 5, 6, 9 and 10?
And also when I click devices by connection, VSPE is not on the list. Virtual Audio is, but not VSPE.
I'm at a total loss.
Mark

You will not see the VSPE COM ports in Device Manager because they are not real and only exist in software. VSPE is not a device and does not show in the devices list. So no problem there. I wonder if something else is set to COM 5 and that is clashing with VSPE,

Of course i do not know what software is running on your system so most of below is likely to be irrelevant. But to help you, I need to know.

Ensure ESDR2 and VSPE are the only applications running.
In ESDR2 make sure no other setting has a claim to COM 5 (check the Device>CW tab for example).
In Device Manager, go to View>Show Hidden devices. Does a COM 5 appear then?

Eric,
For some unknown reason under the options/device/cw under RX 1 enable secondary key was activated and the com port name was com5. I deactivated it. I went back to options/cat and enabled cat 5 and everything works. I went to the other SDR Screen and the setting to the left of the options on the top right I pressed update.
Why this happened is beyond me.

Eric,
Here is another question.
Under the task manager there is an item for the Virtual Serial Port Emulator which is currently disabled.
How do I delete this entry from the task manager?
It seems the only options you have is to enable or disable.
Thanks for all your help!

Task Manager or Task Scheduler? Task Manager should list running software - unless you are referring to the Start Up tab? If it is the Start Up tab where you see it, then check this location C:\Users\MB1\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup for the entry. If it is not there, it requires editing of the Windows Registry. The disabled item does no harm and can be ignored.
