Hello Craig,

I can suggest to try installing these drivers to see if that willl fix your issue.

Hi,
That driver installed com 8 on the machine but the GPS dongle still does not have a driver that works, it is still showing up as a base device in the device manager with no driver associated to it, and wont work. when I scaned com ports origionaly the GPS info program saw com1 only with no device, with the patch it cant see any com ports
please advies if you can

Hello Craig,

Right click on the GPS Info Icon > Properties > Compatibility > and check the box "Run this program as an administrator" and push OK.

Then open GPS Info, and you should be able to see the COM ports

Thanks.
