Com port assignment

  User-6FAD0298-AD15-4C4D-822E03BC3B89AC47 09:37 05 Apr 2004

I have a laptop with no serial RS232 ports so I bought a USB to RS232 adapter. problem is my USB ports are com 6, 7, 8 but my software that requires the serial port only lets me choose 1-4.

is there some easy way re reassign the com port numbers so I can pick one. (don't want to screw up modem, NIC, bluetooth etc..)

Found it, device manager/properties/advanced

Com 1 was free
