Mark, not sure I can help a lot.

Are you sure that the Palisade driver is compiled in the Windows port?  I 
know that not every possible driver is, and I've only tested the generic 
NMEA driver here (which works correctly with the Garmin GPS 18/x LVC and 
Sure Electronics GPS devices, using 32-bit and 64-bir serialpps.sys).

I would hope to see an error message if an uncompiled driver was selected, 
though - perhaps that's what you see.  I don't know enough about the 
Palisade to know why plain NMEA isn't enough.
