OS: Windows 10 Home 64bit
I performed a reset of my Windows 10 PC this morning - fresh windows winstall removing all files/folders/apps etc.
Prior to doing this I upgraded the firmware on the ICA4+ to 2.0.
The first thing I did after Windows had finished updating was to connect my ICA4+ and try to install the driver and iConfig.
1) The manual says you need to install windows drivers, and points you to some images showing the process. The images however relate to the installation of iConfig, not the windows drivers.
This is a bit confusing, however I assume you install the windows drivers first (as an administrator) and then install iConfig, which is what I did.
2) Iconfig would not launch after installation. It advised of 2 missing DLLs. Google told me they are part of Microsoft Visual Studio C++ redistributable 2010, so I downloaded that from the Microsoft website and repeated the installation. It now seemed to work.
(what appeared to be happening here is that iConfig 4.2.6 was trying to install the 2013 version of MVSC and failing, but also needing the 2010 version of MVSC which was not included in the install).
3) OUTSTANDING PROBLEM: Iconfig now runs but cannot connect to my ICA4+. I am now getting the message "An unexpected error occured [sic] while trying to open a MIDI port. Please refresh to connect device again." Refreshing just brings the same message up.
The ICA4+ appears to be installed OK. I can get sound from it, and have now installed Ableton Live which can see all the channels and MIDI ports.
Without Iconfig however I can't configure the thing how I need it!
Hopefully points (1) and (2) will be useful feedback for Iconnectivity, **** however what i REALLY need now is help with point (3). Can anybody suggest a solution? **** I have already tried previous version of iConfig to no avail.
