I will implement a solution.
Needs Setup API and probably Config Manager API.

Please contact me directly so i can send you the files later.

There was a problem when ginsonic tried to reach me.
Tell here if you do not reach me.

The "COMx" device is only existant if the device is plugged.
For all interested in this question:
I will rework my Config Manager API conversion and make it available in the near future.
It will then include some examples for matching COM ports and safe removal of USB sticks.
