TT 3064A Mini M sat phone and windows 10

Dear all,

I have a TT 3064A Iridium Mini M sat phone that is connected to my PC running Windows NT. I am thinking about upgrading to Windows 10 as I could then run for example Predict Wind. Has anybody experience of running an old dial up sat phone in a Windows 10 environment? Are there drivers available that works?

Best regards,

Ulric

May depend on how it connects to the pc. If usb, likely uses the older prolific chip which is NOT supported in Win 10. If serial, with usb adapter, same issue, but you can get a new adapter.

BUT I have no direct experience with this particular phone.

It is a serial connection, so if the laptop has a serial port it shouldn't require drivers at all.. simply use the connection wizard to configure a dial up connection the same as you did on your NT device.
