Locking in a port setting for USB
Posted on 2006-07-21
Is there a way to lock in the port settings so that a specific USB port will always be set to com x, and also can the port settings be locked in to some value other than the Windows default ?
The issue is that the default com number is com 4 but this can be changed through Device Manager-Ports-(converter device)-Properties-Port settings-Advanced and setting to com 1. But the problem arises when the device is unplugged and reattached. When the driver reloads, the com port reverts back to the default of com 4 (on my pc, at least).Since the laptop does not have the 9 pin port, the signal must be converted to USB, and a RS-232 to USB adapter is employed.
