@Badger I am using F4 to Serial as well and works great but always wondered about AIC.
I don't really have the luxury to change protocols on the panels that I purchased and they all work the lights and digital displays using F4 to serial.

Did anyone test F4 to serial on Windows 11? I would like to eventually upgrade to 11 but not without people having tested all these drivers and HW related software.

@Tech AIC is/was a wonderful product. Easy to setup and use. Unfortunately, the developer/producer passed away a few years ago and despite several attempts, the family would not release any of the IP info so the product could continue.
