Sorry if this is old.

What are you using to get the two to talk to each other?
I've used vspManager from K5FR without issue to talk to get Sat32PC to talk to HDSDR which was driving my SDRPlay.
If you aren't getting any COM port errors, that's a good sign.  You might try using something like PuTTY to look at the other end of your virtual serial port setup to see if SatPC32 is talking through the port.  When a CAT session starts, you should see some letters pop up, like "FA;" (for the selected TS2000 radio).

Maybe your problem is something sill like forgetting to make sure "CAT to HDSDR" is activated.

I have received some help from a few people on the @Amsat Twitter group who use this same setup successfully, but still no luck.
