I have had a number of issues with computer programming of rigs, the IC-7000 being one of them. Usually the handshaking problem was related to using the wrong com port, if you are using a USB to Serial adapter. I found a program that checks your adapter to determine which com port it likes.
The link to the program itself is located near the bottom of the article which is very helpful as well.
