Help with WinScan and BC895XLT

Has anyone gotten WinScan to recognize the BC895XLT?

I am running the demo and it consistently comes up
thinking I have a BC245.

Both Radio Manager and Trunker have no problems
controlling my 895 so I think I have eliminated
any hardware issues.

Anyone got any tips?

I've been on the net since spam was a luncheon meat.
Please remove "trap." from my email address to reply.

It all depends on which COM port you use. I have both a 895 on COM 1 and a 245
COM 2 and use them both at the same time. WinScan is designed to run both or two
of the same scanners at one time and does a very good job of it. I think the
demo comes up default on COM 1. If you are using the 895 on another COM port
click on the appropriate one on the "Options" screen and click on "Connect".
Hope my rambling helps...

Do a search for Freetracker and PC895.

Neither of these programs are available any more.

Yes, but it is a problem on older 895s (like mine)

Go to the Options screen and turn off Auto Detect.
Get out of the program and start it up again.
