KX4Z Win10 PACTOR port problem

KX4Z -- last 2 weeks intermittent "port denied" on USB --> Pactor III modem.... suspect some problem with USB to serial converter, have ordered new one. Computer runs Windows 10, has generally worked flawlessly for months, now this problem. No problem at all with older VISTA computer that has USB to Pactor DRAGON modem in NCSHARES network.

Hardware line-up remains the same although I've pulled out of my small collection of used (but currently unused) rigs a Kenwood TR-7730. This was my first mobile rig and when packet radio came to the Twin Cities it morphed into my steady 24 x 7 packet transceiver. I've used this radio with a TAPR Beta Board, a TNC1, a TNC2, a couple of MFJ1270Cs. It was my T-238/Dallas Semi 1-wire Wx Station radio for more than five years until the wind direction 'dart' fell off in the middle of a Minnesota winter.

k7if-10 is DOWN (hardware failure)

VHF rig failed due to an interface mishap. Parts on order expect 1 week downtime.
