Title: Support for 'higher' com ports?
Post by reijndert on Mar 10th, 2008, 10:22pm
Is it possible to use higher comport numbers?
I can only find com1-4 in the Psi2Win interface.

My laptop has no rs232, so I use an USB to serial cable ( with prolific chip ). It presents a com7 to the windows xp operating system.

So it would be nice to have an option to select com7 as communication port.

< some time later >

Find the answer.
In XP it is possible to alter the properties of the 'virtual serial port'. I remapped COM7 to COM1 and Psi2Win accepts this. Server is working fine now.

Just testing the upload ( from LZ to laptop ). Will try download later. So far so good.

Thanx for this nice software!

So you found a workaround, allright!

However, Psi2Wid DOES actually support higher COM-Ports, it's all described in the README-file.
In short: You need to edit PSI2WIN.INI, the setup file that is established in the program folder after Psi2Win was run for the very first time.
