John,
Not sure I understand what you're saying.....

I have the office laptop running win 10 x64 with PHD2, CdC and EQmod...
I also have an ol' win7 x32 running the same programs out in the observatory.
Everything working OK.

How can I help you.
Ken

John,
Can you see the serial adaptor in the Device Manager?
Normally the ascom interface would be controlled by the software you use ie CdC etc.
I assume you've downloaded the latest Ascom (v6.3) and the mount driver files?
