Can someone please tell me how to find out what facility/program is using my COM1 port? My PC refuses to run winmsd. Is there another program available that will tell me this info?ThanksMeirion
try this belarc advisor
sorry forgot the link click here
And if Belarc doesn't give the information you need, try Everest Home Edition click here
Apparently in XP winmsd has been replaced with msinfo32.exe, so you can click Start - Run and ype msinfo32, and OK out of the dialog window. You can get the sane place via Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Information.
Thanks guys , neither of these programs give me the info, and for some weird reason my PC refuses to open msinfo32 either
Access the system information?COM ports are sometimes known as serial portsstart menu/all programs/accessories/system tools/system informationIn system information click on the + on components to expand it, click on the + on ports to expand it. Select serial.this will vive you a list on serial ports (com ports) and will start something likeName communication port (com 1)Status (Hopefully) OKDevice PNP device (or whatever yours is)etcCom 1 may be used for a dial up modem if you have one.About half way down the list will be the driver location. i.e c:\windows\system32\etcHope this helps
