Why? What's the thinking behind this ? Is something not working correctly or do you need to assign a specific address for a reason ?

That would be really unusual.  Generally the device driver will make such a request for memory reservation to Windows when it loads.  Your involvement is not needed or wanted.  The card knows what it needs.

did anyone else notice hatul has added to the original comment ?
hatul you should post a new comment so that we get email notification (when it's working) of an addition to the question.
if I read correctly your card is causing a conflict with other devices. can you change the address by bringing up the properties in the device manager, deselect the auto configuraton & manually reassign a non conflicting address ?
to do this right click on My Computer, select properties then device manager. double click the device then under the resources tab untick the "use automatic settings" box.
scroll through until the box at the bottom shows no conflicts message then apply & restart the computer.

It depends on the OS to a certain extent. But it would seem your company needs to redo how the card interfaces with the system. It would appear something is not appropriately set in the device or its drivers. In other words you comapnay may need to take this device back to the drawing bard and rework it.

Are you logged in as Administrator?
If so this setting should become available when you highlight the device to be changed.
