First thing to try is re-installing SatPC32 in its own folder, not under
Program Files (x86). I keep hearing about problems with many types of
programs when installed to the Program Files folder under Win 8 and 10...

Subject: [amsat-bb] Server.SDX not autoloading in Sat32PC ver. 12.8c
According to Win 10 task manager, Server.SDX is not loading
automatically when I run Sat32PC (latest version 12.8c). No error
messages pop up to indicate this failure to load. If I start Server.SDX
manually, it now shows up in task manager. Server.SDX is located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\SatPC32\SDX.
So... From here: http://www.dk1tb.de/indexeng.htm, I downloaded *e**.
*The ServerSDX file for Yaesu GS-232A/B amd compatible controllers that
comes with the SatPC32 setup file outputs the target azimuth and
elevation positions to the controller but doesn't read the actual
positions from the controller. With the link below you can download a
modified ServerSDX.exe that displays also the actual azimuth and
The original Server.SDX and the "updated" Server.SDX were tested
separately, appear to be the same file, and look the same to me.
Neither one loads automatically with Sat32PC when placed in C:\Program
Files (x86)\SatPC32\SDX. Both versions accept and store the com port in
setup and I can manually input commands that show in "target", but when
I do a "read position", I get error "no response from controller".
Here are some pix:
Server.SDX as opened manually (both versions):
After manual input:
After "read position":
1. Why no autoload of Server.SDX
2. Why no response from controller? Yes I did restart Sat32PC after
Any and all help appreciated.
