Also have negative experience with Vista and HRD satellite, but not the luxury of going back to XP. In my case it works, but if I try and control two radios (as it does easily on XP), one updates frequencies for doppler nicely, and the other either not at all, or only once a minute or so. All I have to do to catch things up is uncheck one or the other radio.
Not a programmer but perhaps some overhead in controlling the ports? I have serial ports as well as USB converters. Doesnt seem to matter which I use.
SATPC32, by comparison, seems to work fine, but I really like some of the Sat features of HRD and am sad I cant use them anymore.
