Hi Duane,

Welcome to the hobby. I assume that you are using Windows.

Since you have a problem with both software packages, I would expect the
programming cable/driver to be the problem (it usually is). You shouldn't
be guessing at the COM port. You be able to determine it from Device

I would recommend that you visit the Miklor.com website and, in particular,
look at the Drivers & USB Cables page. It will help you determine if you
have correct driver, provide a link for one if you don't and then guide you
through the installation process.
