12827WSJT-X crashed when used with Virtual Serial Port Slitter
- Jun 27, 2014Hi,
I am fairly new user to WSJT-X and love it. Best of the JT-HF direvitives by far, and decodes much more reliably. I am using v. 1.3 r3673.
But I am having issues trying to get WSJT-X running with CAT, every attempt results in WSJT-X crashing. Because I am also using several other programs which need to share the rigs (IC-7600) serial port (Log4OM, Hamport and N1MM), and WSJT-X does not utilize a rig sharing facility like OmniRig, I need to use a Virtual Serial Port Emulator or splitter. I am using VPSE v 0.938 from Eterlogic.com. It takes the normal COM6 and emulates it as COM8, so I have all programs set to use COM8. This splitter works for all my other programs, OmniRig and N1MM via COM8. But when I set WSJT-X to use COM8, it reads the rig frequency and shortly thereafter crashes, with no error message. If I remove the VSPE and connect WSJT-X to use COM6, it reads the rig fine, with no crashes, but no other programs can!
Any help on this would be appreciated!
