Click on Com Port Setup on the menu Doc posted. The link to that is via the Control Scanner option on the drop-down Scanner menu.
Once you select that, you'll get this screen:
88039

On that one, click the button labeled "Start Auto".
If the scanner is connected to the PC via the cable, and you loaded the Serial Port driver successfully, FreeSCAN will find the correct port to use.

When you downloaded the Serial Port driver, which is compressed (zipped), did you then extract the files onto your PC?
Is the port you see in the Device Manager working? Or do you see a yellow exclamation mark, indicating it's not working correctly?

Hi electricemt- I'm not that far from you in Stratford, CT in fact, I have the same scanner. If you pm me, I will give you my cell number, then look at my computer for the BCD-996P2 program and software update. it is too hard to text it to you.

You can find the link to the driver towards the bottom of this page.

Be sure and follow all of the installation instructions.
Download the file
Unzip the file so that it's contents are usable by the scanner.
Then, in the Device Manager, right click on the port that is showing issues (the one the scanner is trying to connect to).
You'll see something like this:
88106
Select Update the Driver
You'll get this:
88107

The PC will search your hard drive & find the correct USB driver that you downloaded & unzipped
