I'm going to get the PITA award for so many questions but so far everything I've asked has been met with excellent advice.
I'm having trouble connecting to the LI communicator software.
Old computer (7 years old) with rs232 port. I connected the LI and powered it up. I hit the connect button in the software and it says please turn on LI. I turn it on/off a few times and still won't connect. Machine is running xp. I tried every available port static and otherwise.
Newer laptop. (2 years old)
Went out and bought an rs232 to usb adapter. Same procedure as above same problem. Machine is running XP
Wife's newest laptop (2 months old). Used the rs232 usb adaptor. Same procedure same problem. Machine is running windows 7.
I consider myself fairly computer savvy. I can tear a laptop apart and rebuild it under 30 mins. Install OS, networking etc. For the life of me I dunno what I'm doing wrong.
The LI was bought a month ago from Radar Roy so I'm pretty sure its Gen 8. Thats what I ordered.
