Been a few days since my last post and original problem solved but now a new has arisen. About 6 out of every 7 attempts I try to open DecoderPro (on the new comuter) I get the blasted "Java Platform SE Binary has stopped working" error message. Any suggessions on how to resolved this? And to be clear, DecoderPro does open, so the Com Port setting is correct, but on average it takes very many tries. Very frustrating, and time consuming. Thnx all.
"I entered my systerm (digitrax). system connection (pr3), command station (dcs100). Under serial port I had nothing to choose from nor could I enter anything, so it defaulted to "no ports found".
