Sure I'll try that.  Also I used regedit and went in and attempted to delete anything that had Eltima in case it refused to install based on previous install.

I also notice that just before the APCC install happens there is a flicker of a pop-up window that is just a frame outline.  Nothing that can be read.  It reminds me of a pop-up blocker.
So I wondered if user account control was the issue. I went to inspect and see that I have it all the way down to "don't bother me".

Just out of curiosity, can you try creating a new Windows user account that has admin privileges and install it from that account?

Yes, I've done that. There is something wrong where it will not pop up the install option for the virtual com port driver.
The check box is checked (by default) and left alone each time. I do NOT uncheck it.

I dug out my old computer from the office and installed everything fresh on it and sure enough I can get that install
option just fine. Uninstalling, rebooting, disabling AV etc, makes zero difference. All systems use the same version of
windows with the same options. Default.

The only thing I can think of is that my main PC is a AMD Ryzen system not Intel. The other two systems are Intel
based.

Only have the default windows security stuff. No different than any of my computers including the one that
works. But I will turn it all off anyways and see what happens. Thanks

One other thing you might try is temporarily turn off your anti-virus software as it may be blocking the
virtual port component from being registered.

Hi Ray, Yes I have done that about 5 times in the last hour. I even used geek uninstaller to make
sure it found every
trace in the registry and removed it so I could do a fresh install but still no joy. But I also realize
that it is a device driver
so maybe the move is to go into devices, find the device driver, and remove it there. Then re-
install everything?

There is a step in the APCC installer which will install the virtual ports on your computer. If you
don't perform
that step then you will not get the licensed virtual port components on that computer.

So, try reinstalling APCC Pro and enable the checkbox in the installer to install the virtual ports
component.

Subject: [ap-gto] One computer I can create a virtual port. Second computer says I have to buy a
license
for the
activeX control (virtual port) for this computer. #APCC

So I have two computers that I am setting up. My main PC (desktop gaming system) and a little
Mini pc.
On the little
guy everything seems to work as it should.

ON the main PC system I have an issue where when I try to create a virtual port it has a pop up
saying I
need to buy a
license for the virtual port software. $139 for the cheap one.

I am trying to test out point mapping on my new Mach2 but haven't been able to yet because of
that
license
requirement.

I uninstalled everything AP related and did a full re-install and nothing has changed. So while my
little
PC seems to
be working, I would like to be able to use my main PC while I am at home as it is more
comfortable and
quick and
easier to work with. (dual monitors and all that).

Anyone know what I am talking about and how to resolve this?
