We have someone using a Win XP Pro laptop. He has an older Palm Pilot that uses a serial port connector. We got him a Serial to USB adapter since the newer laptop didn't come with a serial port. Now, everytime the laptop boots up, we get an error that says "The selected port, COM 4, is not available at this time, Hot Sync Manager will open the port when it becomes available". We can only click OK and he can continue to use windows and work.
This is the adapter we are using - it did not come with a drivers disk. http://sewelldirect.com/usbtoserial.asp
Major annoyance though! - Any help? Thanks!
