Connected via usb cable to my computer, UART drivers loaded go to connect and message comes up that it is actively refusing connection - am I doing something wrong?

Are you running the exe with 10 in it, as its the mavlink v1 version and should be the one used  ~~

I';ve got ArdupilotMegaPlanner 10 installed, Mission Planner 1.2.31 mav 1.0

Hi Darrel so you have got Mission Planner 1.2.31 mav 1.0 installed and when you run the program your running the file ArdupilotMegaPlanner10.exe but its saying connection refused

What flight controller are you using and what firmware did you load on to it ?

DarrellW

This is the message I';m getting:
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

Gaza07

In the top right corner of the planner have you got it set to connect via a network connection ?
you should select the com port thats active and set the speed to 115200, then try to connect again  ~~

127.0.0.1 is your PC and 4450 is the port. Check that there are no firewall rules set to block traffic and that you have no antivirus or anti-malware software that could stop the connection.

Only choices are TCP or UDP, tried re-installing Mission planner still the same.

Windows should install the drivers automaticall..

If the dont they are FTDI drivers.. and you can find them here http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

Once installed you should see a serial port in ports (usb to serial adapter / converter)

Oh just remember.. windows sometimes see the port as a mouse.. check to see if you have an extra mouse in devices.. if so disable it...

Ran upgrade advisor - no problem with my pc (Core2 duo 1.8 overclocked to 2.8 with upgraded heatsink and cooling fan 2 Gb good quality (Corsair) RAM, 320Gb 7200 Seagate barracuda SATA drive, NVidia Geforce 2Gb graphics set up as Quadro (cheating)) It';s nearly as fast as my workstation at work which is only 3 years old and has a quad core processor.
But it was considerably faster on Ubuntu especially for graphics rendering (on Blender).

Windows 8 has a totally different look and feel to it than previous versions of windows. And it will be a hassle getting all your old software and drivers working properly. I wonder how long it will take to get all the quadcopter software that i use running on it.

So the fact your machine is capable of running it is only a good thing if you are one of those few people who actually WANT to install the thing.

Most people who end up using it will do so when microsoft stops allowing new PCs to be sold with previous versions of windows, which will be annoying.

I agree completely with what you say, by choice I am a Linux user because it is so much more customiseable than the proprietry os';s - and it is less prone to attack from nasties, no longer a geeks os anymore anyone can install and use it, the only issue is which version to go for. I stick to Ubuntu and Fedora because the level of support is good.
I only tun Windoze for Solidworks and flight planner both which I';ve not seen anyone run on Wine. I';ve tried both on virtual box but drivers don';t want to work and I don';t know how to fix them.
I';ve decided not to go down the Win8 route - why should I pay for something I don';t really need?

So far Windows 8 works just the same as 7 for me. No driver issues, bluetooth connection to Ardupilot is fast and solid. Drivers went in fine for the FTDI etc.
