IC-T2A and COMM ports

Post

Cannot get a COMM port to work

I am using a Dell laptop with Vista. When I plug the USB cable in, it grabs COMM 13. But the program only goes up to COMM 9. I went into device manager and changed the COMM port but the program says device in use, regardless of the comm port I choose. Any advice?

Many thanks,

Mike

I had similar situations where the Com Port was only available from 1 to 9 but the laptop had Com 1 to 20 something like that. Best thing is do unplug all your USB devices and if you have any other software in use, utilizing any com ports. Yes you can change it in DEV/MGR but it will say in use because another software or Device is using it. Try that and tell me if it worked. Thanks 73s
