RE: [wsjtgroup] WSJT-X v0.8 r3112
You stated your using the same CAT port as your DX commander was that correct?
“Installed new version. Set CAT for Kenwood TS-480HX COM10, 38400, 8,none,1. Also checked box to ID after 73. I monitored COM10 and there is no activity between this program and the COM port. I'm using Virtual Serial Ports Emulator and running DXCommander on same port. Also after my first contact with this version I sent 73 message and there was no CW ID even though the box is checked.
Windows7 Pro 32 bit. Also I installed over last version, I did not remove the previous version as it was not stated to do that. I'm not sure exactly what the CAT control is supposed to do when/if it does work. Should it change the dial readout? How am I supposed to control the Kenwood? These are not documented.”
In your VSP software if DX commander is on comm. 10 then the WSJTX software needs to be on the OTHER VSP port which is mapped to com 10 it should not be on the same comm. port,
VSP emulators basically take one comm. port and route it to another and vise versa making a link between the two
The CW ID is working, I must have missed it on the first contact. The CAT control is not working per my previous post.
- I have the same issue. I find that if I just reselect the USB Codec that it will then work for that session for as long as you have the program running. If you shut down then next time you restart you need to reselect the codec.
I currently use an older version and it does this

I had a similar problem when I first installed. I had been using the old default install location requiring "Run as Administrator", but transmit only fired up upon unchecking the "Enable Tx" button.
I ended up having to uninstall the software and install it fresh. I first installed v7, r3071 which puts it into C:\wsjtx right off the root directory. No more "Run as Administrator" required and it runs fine.
I also left the PTT Method as DTR with the PTT Port as None for my SignaLink USB here with my FT-950.
If you read the latest release notes, you'll see that the manual is not up to date and Joe plans on having this addressed shortly.
Hope this helps.

- Very nice update. CAT control works fine with VSPE virtual serial ports so I can run my logging software at the same time.
Only niggle is that using 120dpi with larger fonts the yellow text on black background showing date and time is just a wee bit too big to fit the space available.
