I set up batch ripper with a MicroOrbit on Windows XP in 2016 and all was well. Later I moved it to run in a Virtual PC XP Mode on Windows 7 and all was well.
Now I'm trying to install on Windows 10 but I'm struggling:
1) to work out what loader I need
2) to communicate with the COM port ("Unable to open the com port specified")
3) to know if this is even a viable configuration
4) if I should be installing 64 or 32bit version

am I wasting my time?
Is there a set of instructions that will help me that I've failed to find?

Any pointers will be much appreciated.
