• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have a Radio Shack Pro-2055 scanner that I haven't used in forever. At one time I had the Win97 software (w/license) but lost it all (including the license key) in a fatal computer crash. I still have the cable though.

Anyhow, I did a search and found for the Win 97 software but I can seem to unzip the file getting a "Permission denied" message. I don't know, maybe it's (the software) has been disabled? Not compatible with Windows 10?

Might I be doing something wrong or is there another program that I can obtain that will help me to program this thing. I guess in worst case, I can read the manual and program it manually. I'm just trying to set it up to give to a family member in another state so they can listen to their local PD (Buffalo, NY area)

Any help would be much appreciated.

On another note, I'd spent a good chunk of change purchasing the Uniden BCD536HP so I could obtain the Memphis PD .... and then my county (DeSoto County, MS) went encrypted for everything...including dog catcher! Now I hear sirens down the street and don't have a clue what's going on. But at least I can still hear the activity in Memphis.

I just downloaded (Win97 - Data Management Software for the PRO-97, PRO-2055, PSR-300, PSR-400, PRO-164, and PRO-163 Scanners) to my Win10 machine - extracted and ran it... no issues.

Using Chrome - opened the download folder - right-clicked on the Win97 zip file then Extract All .. no install required so I double clicked on the Win97 application in the extraction folder - ran fine.

Not sure where to ask. Can I use Win500 on more than one computer?
I just updated to the newest version but put it on my desktop instead of
a laptop.

LOL... I'm not sure exactly what I did but somehow the program seems to be installed and even has my old license key number (?). When I used that program last, it was on a completely different puter

Anyhow, thanks for the help. Now we'll see if I can actually remember (or stumble my way through) programming this PRO- 2055.
