GpsGate 2.6 works 100% ok on Windows 7 x64 if you follow instructions to install driver. Can only suggest you double check instructions followed correctly.

There no place like 127.0.0.1

My only thought and I just went through this is did you follow step 4. When you run the program as and Administrator this is what installs the driver.

I also am having problems with GPSGate on a Windows 7 machine. I followed all the steps list for 64 bit op system and none of my devices see the virtual com ports. When you try to add additional com ports, you get an error msg [1275]failed to create virtual serial port.

Im using a BU-353 puck. The puck works fine if I do not use GPSGate.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

jeff

You need to install the 64-bit driver. Read this:

Error 1275 means it tries to load the 32-bit driver. Which in turns mean you have failed in some step of the guide.

I also followed the steps to the letter and am unable to create a virtual com port in Windows 7 x64. The system log records the following error when attempting to create the port:

I had the same problem:
[5] failed to create virtual serial port ...
In my case problem was in file manager TotalCommander!!!!
When it opens c:\windows\system32\drivers really you are in other place!!! Namely - in directory for 64-bit drivers, so you see small amount of drivers( 5 in my case). When I use Windows Explorer I got large list of drivers in c:\windows\system32\drivers!!!
After I copied bizVSerialNT.sys by Windows Explorer to the right dir, virtual port creates OK.
It is strange effect of compatibility links in windows 7, I suppose.
Any way great thanks to Franson

I had the same problem with my file manager (Salamander 2.52) as alkuren had with TotalCommander. It might be worth mentioning in

http://franson.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8252

that Windows Explorer be used to copy bizVSerialNT.sys.

I was able to get it working. I retraced my steps not just redoing the actions, but verifying the copied files. I did a cut and paste in explorer initially, but the file was not in the drivers folder when reverifying. I cut and pasted again and it still did not exist in the drivers folder. I went to a command prompt and successfully copied it in to the folder. I am not sure, but since system32 and drivers are "special" folders I think there may be some magical file protection. Regardless, everything worked after copying from command line.
