Comms Link, Windows 10 transfer

Hey!
 
My father asked me, to fix the calendar to support 2019.
I bought a serial to USB "plug and play" adapter, to connect with the comms link attached to the Psion II XP.
 
However the Psi2Win says COM.. not accessible. None of the ports are. Tried to install some random legacy com and serial drivers but no luck. I'm just 21 years old, i never touched a serial cable before, i don't even know what these COMs are really.
 
Can you please help me out with some detailed instructions? Thank you!

After you have connected the Psion via the USB Comms link to your PC, and started Psi2Win, click the Setup button.
 
Usually only one of the listed com ports is green, and if so, choose that. If none of them are green, then the system must have chosen to use Com port with a higher number. Just enter 5 in the text box, and click the Check button to see if that works. If not, try 6, 7, etc until you get the right port.
 
If that is taking too long, and you are on a windows machine, you can open the Device Manager of windows (open the start menu and just start typing "Device manager" to search for it), and expand the Ports(COM&LPT) entry to see which port is being used.
 
For general instructions for setting up and using a comms link on modern computers, see this:
