GNS 5890

I am using a USB GNS 5890 with VR, but I am having some issues with installation.

Alongside VR, I use FR24 Feeder and ADSBScope, where both work fine with the GNS. However, I can't seem to connect to VR.

Everything is set up on the 'Receiver' tab, but when I press 'Test Connection', I have a message saying that 'a connection cannot be made with these settings. A device attached to the system is not functioning'. This is odd, as the GNS is working with everything else, and I can't put my finger on it!

Any help would be absolutely fab and gratefully received!

I'm not familiar with the GNS5890 but from what I can Google it looks like it's a USB microADSB stick. If that's the case then do the USB drivers present the stick to the operating system as a serial device? If so then I'm guessing that either:

(a) the COM settings are wrong or
(b) something else is already connected to the device.

Do the other programs show what settings they're using when they connect to it?
