I am trying to program the Motorola EX600-XLS using the CPS program. I have been using 3 different computers, 1 with win 8, 1 with win 7, one with Win Xp. I am stuck with "couldn't open port. Check weather device/RIB aare powered on or not, and the device to RIB to PC connection is ok." I have read through many articles online, been trying for 7+ hrs. Please help.

The model is EX600-XLS UHF version R05.16.01.
I have tried using CPS r06.12.02, r06.12.04, r06.12.05, no luck so far. And I am using a "ribless" usb cable.
I have given up i don't know what to do anymore.. Does anyone have any idea on how i can fix this?

Thanks very much.

If memory serves correct, the software is looking for a com port, So find out what com port your ribless cable is using and make sure the software is using the same port.

Its been discussed on here before so maybe doing a quick search will find a more detailed answer.

Not to mention that you are using way to old version of the software. You need 6.12.9

Is it a Motorola ribless cable or a "Shangwang" like Kawamall? TT

I noticed that on the 64 bit versions that it will not work but on the 32 bit versions it will work just fine so check and see if it will work with the 32 bit version of Vista or 8 or 7 and I see if it will work just fine there
