I tried from a win10 machine with a real serial port rather than using a usb serial adapter and it worked fine. I hadn't tried this box before because it was win10 not xp or win7 but it actually worked fine.

Try a box with an onboard serial port.

Using a sub lead . Have now downloaded the .R03.11.16  version and it's reading the radio. Seems version .16 looks for the active com port software . I am using Windows 10 64bit and it's working . Took a bit to get running though.

Problem solved .. It appears the USB cable chipset is running the pl2303 and reporting back error 10 which is not recognised by the R03-11-16 software.  This is fixed in Win10 x64 by running this # www.ifamilysoftware.com/Drivers/PL2303_64bit_Installer.exe  works for me and hope it helps others .:thumbs:
