• 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 just downloaded Win97 for use with my Pro-97, but I can't download what I already have on my scanner to Win97 program. The computer keeps saying that it is "looking for header" and then it "times out" The scanner is reading "Clone Mode - press up to send..."

I am very new to all this, so it could be something simple, but the help section on Win97 isn't working (I even tried what was posted on the web site to fix it).

Take a look at Win97's Help file (click top right of screen). Once in the Help file, look in the index for "connect". I think you'll find your problem described along with likely fixes. I'm guessing the correct com port has not been selected.

Problem Solved

I am not able to access the "help" file, but your suggestion about the comm port was the issue. I just did a successful down load.

Thanks.

The only difference is that I've been running this program on my desktop for over a year w/ no problems. Now that I've installed it on my new laptop this problem exsists. Not only that but when I try an access help it comes up then when I try to choose an option from the menu it states "Address not valid" Any help would and will be greatly appricated. Thanks,
