Re: Virtual ports

Thanks, Joe and Rich.

Although the "simple" delete and recreate did not work, a complete uninstall and re-install of the Device Router did the trick.  No idea what happened, but then Windows is Windows, and users are users.....

Thanks again!

And I say "recognition" because within MicroHam Device Router (which I've used for years), I can still query and control my rig (COM3) and key it in CW (COM4), and key it in RTTY (COM5). However, neither MMTTY nor DXLab Commander even see these ports any longer.

One other thing - and not sure if it's "normal" with Win10 - in the Win10 Device Manager I don't have ANY ports listed - i.e. the "Ports" option isn't even there.
