after hearing a few complaints with the migration to Microsoft Vista, I thought I would relate my own findings after several issues surfaced. you might experience much the same in your own Vista transition.
new Toshiba laptop running Vista and Airmail 3.4. SCS Pactor PTC II-usb modem, controlling both Icom M802 and IC-7000 transceivers.
what once worked correctly under Windows XP, now would terminate the process once a connection had been established, with a FQ (FBB disconnect) received ostensibly from a bad command sent. I tried the latest Airmail release, v3.3.081 and the beta version v3.4.022 with identical behaviours.
I was only successful, after getting the latest v3.8 drivers from SCS. the older version drivers as supplied in the Airmail release did not work properly on my laptop. Vista has supplied its share of quirks and Jim Corenman has addressed many of these issues in the beta release and an included help-file specific to Vista issues.
feels good to be back on the air ...
