I could not connect my MX-980 via CCP when I upgraded to windows 10. I tried all the suggestions on the forum and they did not work. I called URC and they gave me the following solution that worked.

Right click on the windows icon on the taskbar, select Computer Management, select services and applications,

Select Services, Select "Windows Mobile-2003 based device connectivity, select log on tab, unselect "This account", select Local system account, the check off Allow service to interact with desktop

Run CCP, try to download file. It will probably hang. Unplug remote, the replug back in. and try again.

Should work now.

If anyone wants to show their appreciation to me, simply PM letting me know they would be willing to help me with a question when I have an issue or need upgrade advice :)

Thanks for the valuable information! I literally came here for the purpose of sharing this same advice. I hadn't needed to program my MX-980 for a long time, but I couldn't for the life of me get it to work with Win 10 yesterday. After doing a lot of Googling, I came across the same solution that URC suggested. In my case, however, the solution had nothing to do specifically with the MX-980. I had noticed that Windows Mobile Device Center wasn't working properly, and I came across this page suggesting a fix ...


Hopefully, this will help others to avoid the headache we went through. :)

It worked! I've been struggling with this for months. That little tweak to the service did the trick. Mahalo.
