Driver installation

The drivers files are located on the supplied disk. They are also available in zipped format:

The driver installation procedure is similar for installing other computer devices and is described in details in this section.

Windows 2000

As a result, you will see a new pair of serial ports in the Device Manager (right-click My Computer on the desktop, select Manage from the menu, select Device Manager from the list on the left side of the window, then open Ports (COM&LPT) branch on the right). On of these new ports is a CAT port, and the other one is PTT/CW port. 

The port numbers are assigned automatically. To change their values, right-click on the one you want to change (still in the Device Manager) and select Properties from the menu to open the MixW RigExpert Tiny Serial Port (COMx) Properties dialog. Activate the Port Settings tab, then click Advanced. In the newly-open Advanced Settings for COMx dialog, select a new COM Port Number. (Please take into account that some software can only work with COM1...COM8 ports, other is limited to COM1...COM4.)

Important: To avoid Windows serial device enumaration (which may cause unexpected PTT or CW output activation) please keep the Serial Enumerator box unchecked in the Advanced Settings for COMx dialog (see above).

To uninstall the driver, please go to Control Panel (Start button - Settings - Control Panel). Click Add/Remove Programs icon. Select MixW RigExpert Tiny CAT+PTT/CW Drivers from the list and click Change/Remove button. It is necessary to unplug the device during the uninstallation procedure.
