    Hi,
    Using windows I am trying to talk with my ic-7600.
    Downloaded hamlib-win32-1.2.12 and in the bin directory I am running rigctl. My rig # is not recognized. I see it in the include\hamlib\riglist.h file.

    Command: rigctl -vvvvv -m 363 -r COM4 -C data_bits=8 -C stop_bits=1 -s 19200 f
    Output:
    .
    .
    .
    .
    rig_register (353)
    rig_register (351)
    rig_register (354)
    Unknown rig num 363, or initialization error.
    Please check with -list option.

    I do not see the 7600 listed in the -list output. I must not be using rigctl correctly. Any suggestions?
    Thanks,
    Steve

    I just tested SVN on Linux and model number 363 is present.  Perhaps you may need to be sure no older version of Hamlib is installed anywhere.  Does `rigctl -V' return 1.2.12 as expected?

    Correct, it's version 1.2.12. I did not perform an install. Just copied the folder over.
    It's the only version I copied but rigctl also exits in the wspr directory. I'm running rigctl from the hamlib directory when the previously attached output was generated.
    Any idea where rigctl gets the information it uses to print the supported rigs? Is it hardcoded into the binary?

    On Windows, I don't know what the search path is for DLLs.  On Linux it will follow the order found in /etc/ld.so.cache which is updated by the `ldconfig' command.  Also on Linux the library search path can be overridden with a shell environment variable.  I'm not familiar enough with Windows to know if the same is possible on it.

    As you have wspr installed with a rigctl.exe in it, I'd be curious to know what version it returns.  It may be that wspr installed the Hamlib DLLs to a system directory that your locally installed version of Hamlib's rigctl is finding first.  Hopefully, someone who is more familiar will be able to chime in.

    Must be something like that. I have completely uninstalled WSPR and the problem still exists. Looks at the ENV variables in DOS I do not see anything suspicious.
    I have searched the FS for hamlib in any other locations but do not see it.

    Steve,

    Have you searched your whole FS for the file hamlib-icom.dll ?
    It really looks like you have a "were-DLL" prior to 1.2.11 hiding somewhere.
    IC-7600 was introduced in Hamlib 1.2.11.

    What version of zip file hamlib-win32-1.2.12 have you downloaded? Is it the version ending with -5 ?

    What version of Windows are you running?

    My original post is from XP. But I just now finished building a new win7 box and downloaded the libraries zip file. Nothing else other than win7 and it's eleventy thousand updates were installed on this system before downloading the library file.
    The version I downloaded is "\hamlib-win32-1.2.12-5"

    Here is the ouput from the -list.

    I should have mentioned that I see that 7600 is there so I've got to figure out where the older hamlib file is at on my XP system.
    It seems that that is the only possible thing that could cause this behavior, correct?

    Found the libraries. I had to look manually.
    Windows search could not find them in the \Windows directory for some reason. I'm still looking in other directories to make sure. Guess that's why I only use windows when I have too.
    Thanks for the help folks!
    Steve
