Anyone know a program that allows me to change the range of COM Ports allowed by a specific application (COM 1-4) to a higher number, say COM 6.

Yes it's called windows..
In device manager expand "ports (com&lpt)". Right click communication port (comm1) or which ever shows.
Select properties, select port settings tab, click advanced, choose what ever number you want. new number will show after device manager is closed.

This works in XP no idea if it does in other OS's
