I haven't had the problem with the TT4, as I'm not quite up to your stage yet.

But I have had the same trouble with the TT3 Plus Congf file  on a laptop PC. The only thing I could put it down to is the XP on the laptop PC, I was using has a 'bug' or 'problem' in the software some where and it manifests it like this. 

What caused me to think this was a friend had no trouble with the same XP and laptop PC brand, so I got hold of another older laptop 'Toshiba' set things up and ......... never looked like being a problem, worked every time,,,,

So I would suggest, set up another PC and give it go!  Old saying "no cheek no fruitcake....."

When it comes time to run the my TT4, I hope all will be OK, has been so far with the TT4 software. I have the TT4 Desplay as well but want to understand the TT4 before bringing them together.

All the best

Hello all.
Wonder if anyone in Melbournes Eastern suburbs might have 
set up / played around with a Tiny Trak 4 and got it working successfully 
I seem to be having a bit of a problem with my Windows box 
and although I seem to have sorted out and installed the Alpha firmware, every 
time I go to the config file and look for a port it tells me that the TT 4 is 
not found. I have looked in device manager and it tells me that the TT 4 port ( 
5 ) is working properly but no matter what I do I just cannot seem to configure 
the TT 4.
Just looking for someone who has " been there, done that " 
who can help me out with what might only be a " finger " problem on my part as I 
cannot seem to be putting my own finger on the right pulse.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks.
