      He might be running the trial Scott - I don't think 1.47 will run in trial mode?

            Oh... Umm, then there are a couple of people that have come through the forum lately that may need that info. I thought that the versions after 1.20 were cobbled so that they had to have a license. With 1.20 targeted as the "download trial" version on the Flux site, that kinda' makes it look like that's it.

            It might be worthwhile to get a note to David that the "1.20 trial version" should just be replaced with a link to the latest version of CF. It'd probably help a couple of the folks sniffing around lookin' to buy.

                k, so lets focus on the devices one at a time. The GPS is probably the easiest.

                Which Haicom device are we talking about? ref: http://www.haicom.com.tw/product.aspx

                Does the GPS show up as a COM port? When you say you can get to it from Windows, what app are you using? If you launch that app from within CF (i.e., add it as an application, don't minimize CF and launch it), does it see the module? What happens if you _do_ minimize CF and launch the app? Does it see it then?

                  Also make sure only 1 application is using the com port at any given time. So if GPS is on port 4 then only 1 program can access the program on port 4. There are programs that can split port 4 to ports 5 and 6 so 2 applications can use the same info at the same time.

                    Good point!

                    I think Xport is the most widely used...
