Hello all I am new to RR and i have downloaded the trial version of WIN97 in hopes of being able to program my Pro-163. when i enter in the data and select upload to pro- 164/163 it give me an error message. is this the correct software, and is the cable supposed to be mono/stereo/triple?

thank you and i hope some one can help me.


Btw, I live in DuPage County, Illinois. and trying to enter in the county police/fire.

Welcome to RadioReference.

First of all, are you sure you have the correct COM port selected? Go to Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager and see what COM port has been assigned to the USB cable. Then select that COM port in WIN97.

Next, be aware that there are several "upload" options depending on the exact scanner model. Make sure you've selected the correct one for your model and version.

Do not use the pigtail that comes with the cable. Your cable should have a "stereo" connector on the end that plugs into the PC/IF jack of the scanner.
