I thought the RT system cables were intended for programing and not control......  Is it possible that the control option is absent on your model? 
Just a thought....

Hi Ed,

I just tried a generic KeySpan USB to serial adapter on my Win 7 Pro 64 
bit machine and it worked fine. My default baud rate setting was 9600 
from SATPC32. I did have to change the radio CAT speed to 9600 just for 
the quick test (was 57600).
