Go to the ICOM web site, find and download the Silicon Labs USB
driver for the IC-7610's serial ports and install it
And as Icom instructs ... install the Icom USB driver *before*
connecting the transceiver.

To avoid problems in the future, disconnect or turn off the Icom
transceiver (also applies to Kenwood which uses the same SiLabs
USB bridge) *before* updating Windows.

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for your help.  I plugged in a flash dive, the laptop (LP) gave the
audible connection sound, but no COM Ports were showing in the Device
Manager. Did the same with IC 7610, got the sound, but showed up in Other
devices as IC-7610 SuperSpeed-FIFC Bridge, with an error, "the drivers for
this device are not installed (Code 28) To find driver, click update
driver. After clicking Update, it searched my computer and the internet
and could not find anything. I have uni stalled and reinstalled WSJTX many
times with no luck.  I will contact MS and see what they say.

If the com ports are hidden in the device manager that means that the
device has not been detected.  I would suggest:



1. Try a different USB port



2. Try the device on a different computer



3. Try a different cable



4. Try a different device, perhaps a thumb drive, on the problem computer’s
USB ports







Even if the wrong drivers are loaded, the device should show up in device
manager so it is more likely a hardware problem than a software problem.

That most of the issue. COM Ports do not show up in the Device Manager.
You can only see them in the "Hidden" files.

Hi








Does the Windows Device Manager  show the adapter when plugged in - tried
a different USB port ?

What was the ‘config error’ ?

I was working FT8 this past Sat in the morning. I took a break and came
back into the shack and tried to make a contact.  Noticed no power was
being sent. Then I got a config error.  I am sure this is a MS issue.
Other than a complete reformat of my lab top, any thoughts?  And if I do a
reformat, how can I keep this from happening again? I have tried to move
back the hidden files, but ran into issue of the computer not connecting
to the files. I have been working on this for 3 days. If this was not a
new computer, I would just buy another...
