WinSPM and Windows 7 Dialup connection

WinSPM and Windows 7 Dialup connection

Trying to get WinSPM Version 9.0 to work on a Windows 7 32 bit machine. Was able to install and run as Administrator with XP mode enabled. Program comes up and everything appears to be OK. When I go to dialup a site for access I get an error message back that the program is "Unable to connect to TAPI device". Any ideas? Can connect to the modem from other programs without issue.

RE: WinSPM and Windows 7 Dialup connection

WinSPM on Windows 7 has been flakey for me I gave up uusing it and went back to an old XP machine. You might be able to get it to work in compatability mode.

RE: WinSPM and Windows 7 Dialup connection

WINSPM worked well with Windows 7 back when. Changing to XP Compatibility should work. However, perhaps something changed on Windows 7 over the years since I moved on to Windows 10.

I have an antique Windows XP that still runs it just fine.

I'd try XP Compatibility.


RE: WinSPM and Windows 7 Dialup connection

the error message is consistent with wrong tapi port settings.
