[WriteLog] IC-9700 Connection via USB Times out in about 10 seconds

The later versions of Writelog do not have/use an INI file. 


This is disappointing for me.   I've used Writelog since back pre-version 8.   I love how it handles multiple rig inputs for VHF contests.  There is so much FT8 activity on VHF now,  to contest and not be able to work/log FT8 contacts is nearly as bad as not operating at all.    I may have to consider other contest logging options.

When you first go into Writelog on the right hand side you can EXPORT the INI file.


Two things.


1. The USB Cable must be very short -- this is an Icom problem.

2. In the [RIGS] section

Com3:=19200,n,8,2                 Com port that you are using BUT 2 Stop bits.
