New Microtech "C" Software keeps crashing

I downloaded and installed the new Microtech software. But as soon as I connect my to my LT8-X it instantly crashes. Anybody else have this problem or is just me? I dont remember the exact error message but I think is said something about space.

In ANY kind of software or computer troubleshooting, knowing the exact error is critical. What's the error again?

Run-time error '28':
Out of stack space

That is what comes up and it quits after that.

I've been searching the net for some kind of archive with the old software but haven't found it. I never had the old software on this particular laptop before.

Thanks Aaron. I found a copy of the old software on the microtech nz site. I installed the old software same thing happened. Apparently the software doesn't like my Serial to USB converter. Tried a different converter and it worked fine.

What's your adapter?

Personally my choice are PCMCIA/CardBus adapters. They often contain a real UART instead of one driven by software. More expensive though and many laptops don't come with those slots anymore.

Its a USB to serial converter. It comes up as the brand Prolific in the windows control panel. The microtech doesn't like it but it works fine with my Innovate LC-1 and LMA-3.

Try reducing the send/receive buffers on the COM port. That often helps with cheap USB adapters.

There are also a LOT of counterfeit Prolific and FDDI chips out there. Some better than others.
