Please place this file in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\WSJT-X

Restart WSJT-X and duplicate the problem.
Shut down WSJT-X

Then send me the WSJT-X_RigControl.log file that will be in the same location.

I also just installed the 64 bit DLL. Test CAT works. Test PTT does not for a K3 with PTT set to RTS. Tried PTT set to CAT and that did not work either.
If I loaded WSJT from N1MM+ logger, CAT worked.

I did not have the original dll anymore, so renamed the new one and then ran the WSJT-X 2.5.3 installer again to get the original one back, and now all works OK.

That should be fixed now.
New hamlib for Windows installation directions
#1 Shut down WSJTX
#2 Download either the 32-bit or 64-bit DLL -- hopefully your browser doesn't block it but may warn you multiple times.
If you can do a "Save As" you can save it directly in \WSJT\WSJTX\bin and replace the libhamlib-4.dll that is there.
#3 If you don't save directly you need to open a file browser and move the file that way.
If you're not familiar with that here's a video on the file browser.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyVqCJrs9dk

Before I update to 2.5.3 my IC-7300 would turn on about 5 seconds after the program launched, After the update, it takes way longer to turn on the radio. Once it didn't and I got a Hamlib error. I'm running Windows 11 with all updates.
