We have an USB device working as a virtual com port. I would like to let my users get  this device to comunicating to this device without having to manually select a serial port.
how can I get/know the com port name/number and how can I know if the device is not connected?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
