Default RomRaider won't read ECU

I've read everything I can find on any related sites as well as all the FAQs on EcuFlash and RomRaider and can't seem to figure out my isseu.

I'll try not to leave anything out.

I downloaded EcuFlash and RomRaider 2 weeks ago, Read all the info on both sites, read up on all the "getting started" stuff and all the how to I could find. Got the new DEF files then (Before I got my Tactrix) loaded them into the manager and made sure everything was working "As much as it could without being hooked to the car".

I got my Tactrix today, Pluged it into my laptop (Win7) and allowed it to install the device. I see the Tactrix in device manager (COMM4). After that I got the latest DEF files (95) unzipped them opened RomRaider from C: went to the manager, Removed the old and added the new files. I plug the Tactrix into the OBDll plug and hit connect and it reads "Unable to send ECU init" I tried other usb ports (Tactrix still read COMM4), I tried it with and without the Green test mode plug connected. I tried connecting the cable to the car then the laptop, laptop then car and every way I could with no change. I was able to "read from ECU" With EcuFlash but it will not connect to RomRaider

I'm hoping that I am just over thinking the whole process and missing something simple but I'm asking for help "Someone point it out to me plz"

Thank you in advance, I know its a bit of a novel for a small issue and I appreciate your time
