Windows 10, New Driver Issues
 
CHIRP and other programming software
 
8-15-2015
The Update:

If you upgraded your computer to the new Windows 10 operating system or recently purchased a generic programming cable and your software no longer connects, this is something you need to know.

The problem is not with your software, but it is the new driver/cable interface.

As part of the upgrade process, Windows 10 automatically updates your computer with all the latest drivers, and this could disable your programming cable if it uses a Prolific type chip.
 

False Positive: <<<
 
Unlike the prior driver updates, the Yellow Triangle warning in Device Manager may no longer appear, giving you the false indication that all is well.
 
Some indications that your driver has been updated are:
- Your transmitter will turn on when the cable is plugged in.   <<<
- You will receive a code 10 error.
- Your cable will stop communicating with your software.

You will need to reload or backdate your cable driver to 3.2.0.0.  These cables are commonly used with Baofeng, Kenwood, Wouxun, Leixen, and many other transceivers.

The necessary 3.2.0.0 driver is available  HERE
 
Note: FTDI cables will not experience the above.

 
CHIRP Note:

Always run the Latest Daily Build,  found  HERE
Version 0.4.1 is over a year old and may not support your new handheld.
