I've searched, found some good advise but none that seemed to fix my issues.
I upgraded from XP to Windows 7 this winter.
I have a Roland Camm-1 CM-24 vinyl cutter. This uses com1 port to get it's information from the computer. They don't have any up to date drivers that work with windows 7. I installed Virtual PC XP mode, installed the drivers and software on
that, they run fine, but it still doesn't communicate with the cutter.
I have made sure to match up the virtual port to the real com1 port, and I did also make sure the com1 port is labeled/numbered correctly. It doesn't appear anything is using this port either.
When I send the job to the cutter, it doesn't send, but doesn't throw any errors up either.
I have tried a USB to serial adapter, but that didn't work either. When I installed the software for that, it labeled that usb port/device as com5, but virtual PC won't go that high with com ports.
Any advice? I hope I've given enough info to hopefully make some sense of my issues.
Thanks a bunch for reading!
