APM under Windows8 or Windows 7

Hello, I installed APM, latest version at December the 28th, on my lap top running Win8 Pro (64Bit).

I Experience these issue

1. The COMM ports list is built very very slowly (more than 10sec)

2. I cannot chose the COMM port

Both happen if the connection is through USB or 3DR Radio.

The same with a PC with Win7SP1 HomeEdition 64Bit

I'm sorry but I wasn't able to find in the forum a suggestion or a solution.

I installed and fully activated also .NET 3.5

Looking for a solution

    I believe that you need NET 4.0 or higher for the MP to work correctly in Windows 7/8.

    I am surprised that you did not receive a message when installing MP that you needed NET 4.0 or higher for correct operation of MP.
