Hi Justin,
I have my MH program in C:\Misterhouse. In this folder I have a batch file that I use to start MH
REM MH Batch File ----------------------------------------
set mh_parms=c:\misterhouse\mh.private.ini
CD \MisterHouse
cd \MisterHouse\MH\Bin
mhe > C:\MisterHouse\MH_LOG.TXT
REM ---------------------------------------------------------------
Here is the relevant section in my mh.private.ini file
I'm also a windows user.
Maybe Vista is blocking MH from the comm port?

Subject: [mh] basic startup/setup

I'm running misterhouse (latest version) on windows vista 64bit. Yeah I know, windoze...

I'm trying to get it to talk to my CM11A (com2). I have changed the setting in the parm file. But, still nothing. I've added lights etc, but nothing...

Is there something basic I'm missing? the CM11A works in other programs, so I know it is good and that I have the com port right.
