GuysThis may sound a silly question, but how do i comfigure a USB port as com port 1. Using Vista with no RS232 ports, trying to run a bit of software which states "NO COM 1 AVAILABLE".Thanks in advanceDebs
You can't, as far as I'm aware, have a USB port as Com 1, 2 etc.The ports configuration can be found from Device Manager>Ports>list of Devices>highlight a device>right click>Properties>Port Settings tab.
The first paragraph might not apply to serial to USB type devices.
You can reconfigure it - it's a totally different type of port.You may find your motherboard has a Com port on it - but no cable/backplate attached - worth a look at the motherboard manual - any computer shup probably has loads of these plates.You can get a USB to COM port adapter - exampleclick hereThey normally work fine, but are not 100% with all devices.
"You can reconfigure it" - Whoops - You CAN'T reconfigure it - sorry, typo.
