[amsat-bb] SatPC32 and Windows 10 Query

Hello Jack,
I made a test with my Windows 10 Laptop. I has no physical serial port, 
of course , but  I have a 4-port USB-to-Serial adapter and in the 
ServerSDX setup window I chose one of the generated (virtual( serial 
ports. After a re-start of SatPC32 I entered an elevation and azimuth 
value in the SatPC32 menu "Rotor" and clicked  "Execute". Then the 
chosen values appeared in the ServerSDX window. That means that the DDE 
output from SatPC32 to ServerSDX works. If i don't choose a valid COM 
port in the ServerSDX setup window there is no DDE output to ServrSDX, 

73s, Erich, DK1TB
