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.

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.
