Won't Open COM Port
I am trying to download the data from my Kenwood TM-V17A but when I start up CHIRP and click on the download from radio, it doesn't see any of the ports. I have the cable hooked to COM3 on Windows 10 but there are no ports listed in the drop down on the program. If I open the device manager, it sees the radio on COM3

This looks like a cable issue. Please refer to these Wiki articles:
CableGuide FTDI OEM Cables
If there's no solution to be found in any of them, please read: How To Report Issues and provide a debug log. Thank you!
Windows: If you are using a generic cable with a Prolific chip, you will very likely need to downgrade your driver to version 188.8.131.52.
