VaraC worked well before the current release, with or without the use of OmniRig. Now
with the new version of VaraC, CAT control no longer works no matter what I do.
I downloaded the most up to date CAT files for VaraC and OmniRig, but no joy.
The same radio works perfectly with HRD, FLDIGI, WSJTX, and several other programs.
Yes, I tried IC-7300 DATA in OmniRig, but still no joy.
If anyone is running the current VaraC version with an IC-7300, I would be interesting
to see your configuration. Interestingly, the new VaraC works well with my IC-756
series of radios but not the IC-7300. It was the other way around prior to the latest
Thanks for your consideration... Happy Thanksgiving...
Thanks to all for your suggestions. I figured it out. Somehow my IC-7300 CAT baud rate got changed to something other than default. I have no idea how that happened. As soon as I restored it to default, things magically began working.
I just upgraded VarAC today. No issues with the new version v6.2.4 and IC-7300.

Me too with 7300 no issues. I doubt its a VarAC issue but you can revert to previous version (all version are available on the website for download) and check.
My 7300 also gave no isues with cat and the latest install….did you check if your com port has changed?
Don't know if this will help but here are my settings:
Yup, several of us running the latest versions and 7300's with no issues. The updates have not touched CAT.
