WSPR AND FMT PROGRAM OPERATION IN WIN 7

HI all I am a new user to the group. I have been using the FMT part of WSPR on a Windows XP system for awhile but when my new
windows 7 computer arrived I cannot get it to work. My new computer does not have any com ports so under the comport window
in the septup portion of WSPR I selected USB. The problem I have is when I run the fmt program I get a rig open: IO error and
a unable to set frequency error. The second error also appears when I run the program under XP but does not cause a problem.
The first error however, does cause the bat file to end without running the FMT command. I checked the fmt.ini file and the
port command -r USB is there. Has anyone got the program to work with windows 7?
