[amsat-bb] LVB/Amsat computer interface via USB ===> SatPC32

I have acquired a Yaesu G-5500 rotor / controller along with LVB/Amsat computer interface but for the sake of setup I cannot make it talk to SatPC32.   Manually, azimuth / elevation works just fine using both Yaesu controller and LVB interface....LVB triggers the rotor just as the controller does individually.
I read that SDX is the software to use with Yaesu GS-232a/b and compatible controllers .  So I run the SDX file which comes with the SatPC32 setup file.  This SDX file is in a folder within SatPC32. 
When I turn on the Yaesu controller, the USB connected to LVB gets detected by Windowz 10 and creates a COM8 automatically.  I configured ServerSDX for this COM#. I also configured the SatPC32 Rotor setup and select the Yaesu Rotor (232).   There are no more settings there to change.   ServerSDX is suppose to run upon launching SatPC32.  It is suppose to send data to the LVB so that rotor follows the satellite via program SatPC32.   I do not see this happening.
What am I missing?   Any help is appreciated.
