Problem with ZLP Pro+ and WSPR...

My home-brew audio & RS232 interface has been replaced by a ZLP Pro+ combined interface which works fine with Ham Radio DeLuxe etc but I cannot get WSPR CAT control to work with it. The Pro+ is using COM 12 for CAT control with TX keying via CAT. The DOS screen displays:

WSPR Version 2.11_r2263, by K1JT
Run date: Thu Nov 21 20:10:33 2013 UTC
rig_open: error = IO error
Error attempting to set rig frequency.
rigctl -m 101 -r COM12 -s 57600 -C data_bits=8 -C stop_bits=2 -C serial_handshake=None F 7038600

I have checked the COM port and baud-rate settings on the FT-847 and WSPR are set to the same value and tried both 57600 and 9600 but cannot get the two to talk to each other.

Station parameter settings are:
Call: G3WXI
Grid: IO93EL
Audio in: 1 Generic USB Audio Device
Audio out: 4 Generic USB Audio Device
Power (dBm): 37
PTT method: CAT
PTT port: greyed out
CAT port: 12
Serial rate: 57600
Data bits: 8
Stop bits: 2
Handshake: None

Can anyone spot where I going wrong?
