• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

Is there a driver available for Window 11 ARM processors? PD782i. CPS.

I just had to replace my Mac, and realized right away that I had to create new VMware virtual windows machines with the windows 11 ARM version. None of the radio drivers I have work in that windows version...at least I can't get them to work.

The latest driver I have is DMR_SW_usb driver V5.30.42.0_64Bits, but I suspect I need a different one altogether. I'm betting Hytera doesn't make it...yet, if ever.

Has anybody been successful in getting the driver to work on a windows ARM machine?

Update: I'm on the right track with building and compiling an ARM driver, but ran into a Microsoft roadblock...no surprise there... There is a problem with the WDK (VS 2022 Extension WDK - Windows Driver Kit). The actual package built for the ARM processor only references amd64, which causes the install to fail, due to no supported architecture. Changing the references from amd to arm, allows you to successfully install the VS2022 WDK extension, but then launching VS2022, it detects a digital signature mismatch (installer package checksum - because of the extension.vsixmanifest adjustment), and will not allow the extension to operate. Even after completely disabling signature verification, the results are the same.

This is typical Microsoft. They screwed up the WDK build, and refuse to admit there is something wrong with it, even with glaring evidence that the ARM targeted extension is missing a target reference to the ARM architecture.

Existing config:
<InstallationTarget Version="[17.0,18.0)" Id="Microsoft.VisualStudio.Pro">
<ProductArchitecture>amd64</ProductArchitecture>

What it should be:
<InstallationTarget Version="[17.0,18.0)" Id="Microsoft.VisualStudio.Pro">
<ProductArchitecture>arm64</ProductArchitecture>
