If all else fails. You could always try a CSN SAT tracker. It does not use com ports.

After 15 years, it was
time. Old computer still works.
I installed SATPC32 on the new computer. On the old computer I did
a backup. Copied the backup to a USB stick and copied it to the
backup folder on the new computer. Started SATPC32 and did a
restore. Registration and everything is fine. All my satellites
Now the issue....
1. I use FoxDelta trackbox. It is connected USB. It comes up as
USB COM11. When I try to select 11 in the COM port setting of
SATPC32, it will only take 1-4.
2. I have an ICOM IC-9100. I used to have it connected to the old
computer with USB. On new Lenovo ThinkStation Intel I5 chip, it
does not recognize the driver. I downloaded them from ICOM and
that did not help. I went to Silicon Lab and downloaded their most
recent driver and that did not help. I want to get this working
for issue 3.
3. My logging program will read the frequency from the radio for
logging. I used to connect this to the ICOM CT-17. Both USB and CT
worked fine for as long as I can remember. I had to change the
radio to operate from COM 1 instead of using the USB cable.
SATPC32 is happy with it.
I need a driver for the IC-9100. I need to know how to get the
FoxDelta on a different COM port that SATPC32 likes.
I have changed the COM ports in Device Manager with no success.
