Downloaded manual.. all good - thanks.

Running Omnirig, Skimmer, HDSDR and Log4OM all with Administrator privileges works fine... for radio control..

Running communicator with default values, as per manual. Start communicator, seems to be running OK and shows "a green light for TCP Connection for Log4OM".

When I go into the CW Settings screen and attempt to connect to Winkeyer, still getting the same error messages..

David
OK

1. restart Log4om
2. Go to the help menu and select debug mode and then trace as shown below
3. open the Winkeyer window and click the connect button
4. When you see the error message close the Winkeyer window
5. Go to the Help menu and select Send BUG REPORT - as shown below
6. Complete the report form and click "Prepare support request"
7. Email the file to me at g4pop (at) arrl.net

Just a thought are any other programs using the Winkeyer when you try to start it in Log4om?

For the benefit of all.

It took Aldo VA3AG to remind me that this was an existing issue but Lele now has received the Serial Winkeyer that I sent him so we hope to resolve this problem very soon

Apologies to David for taking so long to see the obvious and for wasting so much of his time

No problems at all... I'm actually relieved that it wasn't something I was doing wrong..

Thanks again for the help and time spent... I can see why the program has such a good reputation, and gets great reviews..

I have the same problem, I am using a serial (RS232) Winkey which works fine with N1MM and Winlog32, but not with Log4OM.

O/S is Win10/64 on both a laptop and a desktop, same error issue as VK2NU on both machines.

Any update since this was discussed in January?

No we have not been able to fix the serial Winkeyer issue despite liaising with Steve K1EL, and Daniele now having a serial keyer for test purposes

For me it is also not possible to get winkey2 working in Log4OM. I use a RS-232 version not the USB version and get an instant: The operation has timed out. message in the lower left corner of the winkey window.

In the Log4OM log (with trace on) i find

2016-01-17 15:21:49.5028 INFO: WinKeyerHardware: Winkeyer open command issued
2016-01-17 15:21:50.1528 ERROR: *** WinKeyerHardware: The operation has timed out. ******* [Function: OpenWinkey] System.TimeoutException: The operation has timed out.
at System.IO.Ports.SerialStream.ReadByte(Int32 timeout)
at LogOM.WinKeyer.WinKeyerHardware.OpenWinkey(String comPort, WinKeyerConfiguration config)

My OS: Windows7 64bit version, Winkey2 is working fine with WK2MGR and in other program's (N1MM)

Is there another device that is concurrently using the keyer?

Lele,
This is the ongoing issue we have with the 'SERIAL' Winkeyers and the reason that I sent you the serial Winkeyer hardware to test

I don't think the comport is in use , because when i deliberately start a program that is using Winkey2 on comport 4 i get the message "Access to the port 'COM4' is denied" and not the message "The operation has timed out."

Trace file with comport in use by other program:
2016-01-19 21:03:52.6726 INFO: WinKeyerHardware: Winkeyer open command issued
