COM3 to become COM1?
Bit of a pain this one
Updated some client workstations over Summer - one of which is used by an admin member who has an OMR machine attached
The new machine DIDNT come with a serial port (necessary for OMR) so PCI serial card bought / fitted / installed
However, due to it being an external card, Windows picks up the ports as COM 3 and COM 4. The software for the OMR only accepts COM 1 and COM 2
Is there anyway of mapping COM 3 > COM 1?
I know the base address is different but i think COM 1/3 share the same IRQ?
Can't you uninstall/ disable com1/2 - IIRC I did something like that
Rclick the port in device manager, Propertise , Port settings, Advanced, change the com port number
Worked for me
device manager --> ports section --> select port you want to ammend --> go to port settings tab --> advanced button
