RE: GPSGate and 64 bit Vista

Fri Sep 12, 2008 7:27 pm

Johan, Installed on 64 bit Vista and placed the driver. It allows iTrek Z1 to connect to S&T 2007 via bluetooth but NOT USB. Data Logger allowed USB, but cannot read log before or after GPSGate via bluetooth. <fwiw> I was given a license when I bought my Z1, but am currently using a stand alone Nuvi, so I may just play with this until it expires.

Vista 64-bit users: Johann has done it! I get it to install and followed his instructions to copy the bizVSerialNT.sys file to the Windows System32 folder. I first had to download the latest version of GPS Gate 2.6.
I tried configuring it to share data, but my GPS reading program says that another app. (Franson GPS Gate) is using the USB data.

Almost there!

I also notice that GPS Gate still gives the error message:

[1275] Failed to create virtual serial port

at the bottom of the Output tab screen in setup. My GPS application cannot find any data on the COM1 port.

Are you saying that you copied the file to Windows System 32 folder or Windows System 32 Driver folder as Johann suggests?
Can you create a virtual port? (To share data)

You should update your software to v2.6.0.340,then you can see "running OK".
At first, my gpsgate also gives the error message when my version is 2.6.0.312.

I got it to run with another application, but had to use COM2 to read the NMEA output from my USB Garmin Etrex Vista HCx. However, I next switched back to reading Garmin USB output with the same program, and it could not read anything. Next, put my GPS app back into serial NMEA mode, closed my app and re-opened it, but it said that all the COM ports were in use this time. Hmm. is there a release for the ports one can do so that they can later be re-initialized?

Also, the first time I used GPS gate, I put it into administrator mode, but when I clicked the "finish" button, I got the dreaded blue screen. I am using Windows 7 64-bit.

One other annoyance: Typed in my license key and it accepted it, but when I re-opened the licence key dialog box, the license was no longer there. Even tried putting GPS gate into admin mode and repeated the process, but it seems to forget that I put in the license key.

I can't help you with your main problem but as to the license key once you enter the license key it accepts it but does not leave the info in the fields such that if you open the license entry box the fields are empty.
