Title: Yaesu PCC-450 Application
Post by: N5INP on July 01, 2014, 12:06:10 PM
Well being bored today I wanted to try the PCC-450 control software for the FT-450, on my mini-notebook. I hadn't tried the software before, but I could not get it to work. It just kept telling me the com port could not be initialized (There is nothing wrong with the com ports though because I used them on field day). After several hours trying several different USB-serial adapters and trying all the different com settings on the FT-450, I went to my main computer which had a "real" com port, but got the same messages. After exhausting all avenues I called Yaesu. They had no hints either and said he would talk to Japan and see if it was compatible with Windows 7.

Has anyone else here tried the PCC-450 software at all, especially on Windows 7 or 8? I have run out of options.
