Dave: I was able to order my cable with its TYPE AB plug connector and standard USB plug with Sabrent...a number of cable options were available.

Dave: If the Device Manager is coming up working, I suspect the issue is somewhere else; I wish I knew where.
My rig is the Kenwood 590S with a Type AB USB 2.0 connector. Its plug-end jack looks a lot like the male plugs for printer inputs. The computer end of the cable is what I consider the 'usual' flat USB male, so no gender changing necessary. The 590 does include a serial port but I chose not to use it. I regret not being more helpful.
I wish I had, but glad I don't, a record of every time I used this group for help. Sooner or later (usually sooner) someone has just the perfect answer.

Jim: I really appreciate your thoughtful responses. I used Device Manager to confirm that COM 4 "was working properly" after installing the Dtech driver. Still ACLog failed to update with frequency and mode when running. Like you I had high hopes after installing the driver. I could try deleting the driver, and reinstalling it, but have not done so yet.
Regarding the Sabrent cables and drivers, I found them on Amazon and am considering buying one, if my Dtech cable/driver doesn't work. The Sabrent cables all appear to have male serial DB9 connectors, so connection to the TS450 would require a gender changer, because the radio's CAT connector is also male. Presumably, that's what you did by providing a gender changer for your serial connector.
