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.
