If you do not have a 9-pin serial port or a modem in your computer, then you have the eCOMport error.
Either connect a USB modem or USB to 9-pin serial adapter or try the method to create a virtual COMx port.
Hmm. Almost started new thread for Windows 8 ECom Port error, and read and tried, and succeeded for free. Don't pay, pray, and DO NOT mess with your Registry files
! FIX WINDOWS 8 / 7 ECom Port ERROR STEP BY STEP:
1)Get free http://www.hhdsoftware.com/free-virtual-serial-ports
"Free", no add-in toolbar junk or cNet-style 'bait-n-switch downloads', just good free code; works in 64 bit systems and support 32 systems both.
2)Install it without shortcuts; you only need to use it once.
3)Start the vysercfg.exe and select "Bridge", then "Create".
Mine made Com3-Com4 Bridge. It survives Shutdown/Restarts. You never have to do it again. It does not show in Windows 8 Device Manager. Next copy the d3drm.dll like always.Do not settle for FMS v2a7!
It is not "Hard to fix". It is really "Easy". Go for FMS v2b8.5 for the realistic landings, then go get Gary's PilotRC Sbach 342 53"
. That and the standard Su-26
are so fun.
I wish someone would model a Zagi HP Flying Wing with those actual high-power physics. Crash-proof fun! Thank you Jesus!
