 I am seeking info how to clear CM15 memory correctly for use with HG.  Here is what I have done with CM15 connected w PC via usb the batteries are removed. I checked Device mgr. to make sure I was connected via USB, Then in AHP I cleared history a couple of times, then cleared CM15 memory 8 times then in Hardware interface configuration I selected None for transceived house codes. I notice at this point there is an option button to Update interface. Should I select this option? To this point I have not I just went to file exit.  I do not have any other x10 controllers in use. I have been having a lot of erratic behavior with HG ever since changing to HG. For example at times when furnace X10 A2 scheduled on at 8am may also turn on Fam Rm light X10 A6 scheduled on 15 min after sunset.

I have completely uninstalled Alex 10 from the window 10 Pc. turned off window security. Tried to install the first  version of Alex10. after it says installation completed, click for set up. this message pops up:
" Unable to execute file:   

CreateProcess failed code 740
The requested operation requires elevation".

Same response for latter version of Alex 10

Any idea what is happening? Or what am not doing or should not do?

That was my attempt at humor to make a point, but I admit I opened myself up to criticism. 
Toast! I did not mean to be critical. But I believe most microwave ovens are 2.450 gHz which IS smack dab in the middle of 802.11 a/b/c/x/y/z/etc. But I have worked in many places with WiFi connected computers and phones and 2 microwave ovens humming, with no WiFi problems traced back to an operating oven. I have never used a spectrum analyzer that could get near WiFi frequencies but IF an oven is wiping out WiFi, I am afraid of it. Corneas are sensitive to the upper frequency stuff and can be damaged long before one feels any physical effects.  So I thought I would throw up a flag. Glad it was humor

As a side note to your spectrum analyzer costing more than a car. Back in the early '70s I used an HP spectrum analyzer that could "squeak" up to a gig. That baby was $68k. And now you can buy a 2GHz SA off Ebay for under 200 bucks. Ain't SMD's and digital technology great!

Glad it was humor. But if your kitchen light glows when you cook an egg, be worried.  rofl

Another point here about microwave ovens is that the reason that they were assigned a specific frequency is because they can and do cause interference, so they needed to be assigned a band to cause interference in that wouldn't interfere with anything else assigned at the time.  And if I'm not mistaken, the reason that no license (and associated fees) is needed to use this frequency is because no quality of service can be guaranteed; it's already assigned to "noise and garbage".  And people wonder why they have problems with WiFi.  But hey, at least it's cheaper!

Toast, if you can't use the WM100 when your microwave is running, you may have a leaky microwave.
That was my attempt at humor to make a point, but I admit I opened myself up to criticism.  I've never personally experienced a full WiFi DoS from using a microwave oven, but I did have the opportunity to play with a WiFi spectrum analyzer at work that cost as much as my car.  It was amazing to see everything swamped by noise in nearly all channels as soon as someone started making popcorn.  I don't know if the microwave oven was leaky, but my rationalization was that components in the oven other than the generated microwaves themselves could be oscillating at the same frequency in order to generate them, and maybe I was picking that up.  We did have reports of occasional outages in another building that were traced back to microwave oven use.  Analog cordless phones operating at 2.4 GHz were pretty bad offenders too.

I am using X10 AHP WITH ha-bridge.

I see. So youíre not using HomeGenie. Youíre problem is a separate issue so. I think this section relates to HomeGenie or at least itís supposed to.

I wouldnít mess about too much with anything Amazon Alexa at the moment. Itís going through a major update and you may break more than you fix trying to resolve issues.

Itís important to understand that Amazon make nothing out of these emulators youíll find doing the rounds. The Alexa Skills are what they want to see and circumventing this does nothing to help with their bottom line. Donít expect support from Amazon in fairness when they fail.

Youíll see more and more of these emulators disappear with each new firmware update unless the emulator author maintains them.

I have the original ha- bridge 1.05 I think. The one you included with the Alex10.
Today tried to get 5.3 using the link you sent. It gets quite complicated for me. I have gitHub account but to Complicated for me. How about if you update the original Alex 10 Ha-bridge. I will be great full
