Does Xport32 not run under win10? Just asking here because I have not 
tried it yet...

This program works fine creating a virtual serial port "pair" within the computer. When I try to set up a splitter, the first program to start (such as ACLog) talks with the rig fine on the virtual port. But as soon as I start another program on the splitter port (such as SatPC32), the first program stops exchanging data with the rig (IC-9100) and the second program has all the fun. SatPC32 seems to punch through and lock out any other programs. Eterlogic has not gotten back to me.
