That's the best advice at this point. It MUST be a 32-bit OS and not any newer than Windows 7. If you use a USB to serial adapter - try to make sure it has a LEGIT FTDI chip in it, the rest are all too sporadic to trust.

This is one of the reasons why I am trying to ditch my Astro Spectra and XTS3000 and move to something newer for P25... I want to keep my computer Windows 10 and not worry about "sunsetting" operating systems. It's bad enough I keep a PII laptop around with DOS for MSF5000s we still maintain...
