Not a good day so far.

My P.C. is 7 years old, so I bought a new one with Windows-10 installed.
Everything went well until I tried to run Coolterm for DelTangs Prog4.
This ran OK on my old Windows-Vista machine, but now I get the message:
" Your system currently does not have any serial ports "

I have just spent a couple of hours searching for a solution, but no luck so far.

Anyone have any ideas?

Desperate Dave

I could not find any examples online of successful Windows-10 use of terminal emulators.
Apparently Microsoft have a generic driver which does not like any of the current serial port emulating microchips built into the special cables.

If you have Windows-XP 'service pack 3' or Windows-Vista don't throw the machine away!
I think Apple products are OK.

There are lots of terminal emulators for tablets, both iOS and Android.
There is also a serial simulator cable with control chip for android, but it is expensive and as I still have my old Vista box!

I to am having problems connecting Prog4 to Windows-10.

I have a fake Prolific PL2303TA cable which failed.

If anyone has had success with Windows-10 handshaking with Prog4, would they share their solution please?

See Post 40 on Page 4 of the 'Micron' servos topic.

The link in that Post has a download driver installer that solved the problem for me.
