selected the com port and mount type
Only select the correct com port not the mount. The program will figure out what mount type you have and display it. If this is the first time you have run the UFCT then it the memory location will have the wrong mount type in it. Just follow the instructions as written.

(A) CONNECT The Host Computer To The PMC-Eight Serial Port
(B) APPLY Power To Your PMC-Eight Mount System
(C) START/RESTART The Universal Firmware Configuration Tool
(D) SELECT The PMC-Eight COM Port In The Dropdown Listbox
(E) PRESS 'GET Current Configuration' to Update The Display
(F) SELECT/ENTER New Values Including SELECTING the Mount
    Type As Needed, And PRESS 'SET New Confiiguration'
