QS1R (Quicksilver) with HDSDR cat control works perfectly on WSPRX but not on any previous WSPR2.. versions

Hi,

I am at a point where I can't understand why the new WSPR-X is working perfectly with HDSDR and my QS1R receiver for cat control over virtual serial cables where I get just errors with any versions of WSPR and cat control fails. example below,

******************************************************************
WSPR Version 2.21_r2286, by K1JT
Run date: Fri Feb 01 21:26:27 2013 UTC
rig_open: error = IO error
Error attempting to set rig frequency.
rigctl -m 201 -r COM15 -s 19200 -C data_bits=8 -C stop_bits=1 -C serial_handshak
e=None F 10138700
rig_open: error = IO error
Error attempting to set rig frequency.
rigctl -m 201 -r COM15 -s 19200 -C data_bits=8 -C stop_bits=1 -C serial_handshak
e=None F 7038600

I wanted to do Frequency hoping to check band activity , may be i'll have to wait until the hoping feature is incorporated in WSPR-X.

In both cases I have set it as a Kenwood TS50S which seems to work at least in WSPR-X. Changes bands happily.

Any feedback or ideas greatly appreciated.
