When running the SS6900 V7.01reprogramming software, whether in normal user mode or administrator, I get an error message when reading from radio is at 99% - Run-time error '6' Overflow. Can anyone advise?
(I like to check for unanswered forum postings every now and then. )
I know that when I went about making my own programming leads for various Amateur bits of gear I came across a few issues. All the 'Prolific' nonsense reared it's ugly head and the best I came across then successfully built a lead was with a CP2102 USB to TTL RS232 adapter/interface. (Cheap as chips!)
Unfortunately even though I got that working for several radios I couldn't get it to work on everything and landed up purchasing the OEM programming leads and using their own software for specific radios.
I was getting the same 'overflow' errors as well as appearing that the radio was downloading/programming but actually didn't or failed at the '99%' similar to you.
Anyway, didn't know if any of that experience might help.

We did have a member Sgt Bilko on here but not seen him for some weeks now. He had all the files you could ever want. Not sure if there if a Facebook group for this radio as i think he said at one time he had uploaded the files there but it could be in my imagination lol.

Thanks for your reply. No, I haven't sorted out the programming error yet.
Are you using the newest version of the software? If so, maybe find an older version. I've got a version which I know works with my 6900 I could send if needed. Radio programming software should never need to be run with administrator privileges, this is a throw back from the days when user account control first came to Windows (Vista) and software wasn't designed for it.

The programming software I am using is V7.01, which connects to the radio, the other versions will give a message saying "wrong version". Someone did respond in the FB CRT SS6900 users group, suggesting to first do a "factory reset" before programming the radio.
