Author Topic: Does the OPC-1122U programing cable work on Windows 10?  (Read 3028 times)

Does someone here use ICOM's OPC-1122U data cable (the "B" version) on Windows 10?  If so, do you have any problems?

I ask because Icom's "knowledge base" has drivers for this cable, but makes no references to Windows 10, only Windows 8.  I find this odd, so I thought that I would ask around.

Thank you!

If it is recognized as USBSER.sys and gets a COM port assigned when you plug it into a Windows 10 PC, you probably don't need to install any special drivers.

It is amazing it has taken a couple decades of USB for Microsoft to finally catch up with the most common uses of USB devices without having to install special drivers for everything under the sun. Things are not perfect yet, so many bizarre USB things still need special drivers that depend on Windows version, but they are looking up.
