Before you do anything with HRD, you need to make sure that your RT cable is working with Windows.

Open the 'Device Manager'.   Look at 'Ports (COM & LPT).  Click the little arrow on the left.  

When you plug in the cable, a COM port should be created.  When you unplug the cable, the COM port should disappear.    Is this happening?

If so, right click on the COM port icon.  Then select the Port Setting tab.  You will see the bits per second etc that the port is set to.  (9600 bits per second is default).  Make sure that the HRD settings match the Device Manager port settings.

Using win 10 (hate it) using version hrd 5.4 no other devices attached other than the mouse. Using the Rt software cable and also normal usb to plug cable. No luck with either.

I used HRD 5 and 6, with com2 at 19200 baud, if I remember it right, both on XP and win7pro.
What version of HRD and what for an OS are you using?

The last Microsoft I played with was XP. Usb ports get lost. I remember having to go to some hardware settings, that listed all devices and turn on and off USB settings, two, three, and four times, to get it to lock on. Pull all other gadgets, printers, scanners, and try with just one device (radio).
