The driver for the converter however allows seledtion of any unused port number, so I tried 1 and 2 as they were free. I recieved an error message from the program "Cannot open port '\\.\COM1'. Now the slashes in that string will probably be mangled by the script so to repeat it in text, Apostraphy slash slash dot slash com1 apostropy.
Any advice or experience in respect to resolving this would be greatly appreicated.
