I installed a Bluetooth device (OBD2 automotive diagnostic transmitter) on my Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop (Intel ual core; 2GB RAM; 120GB disk). The Bluetooth OBD2 device paired to the laptop, and installed on COM41. THE PROBLEM: Most automotive diagnostic SW requires COM8 or below. I need to change the COM port from COM41 to COM8 or below to use the desired OBD2 software on the laptop.
Before anyone responds with "Device Manager/Ports (COM & LPT)/right click COM41/Port Settings tab/change to desired port", my Device Manager does NOT display a "Port Settings" tab. Maybe that's the problem, since a "Port Settings" tab displayed for this device in the Device Manager under "Ports (COM & LPT)" would allow me to change to the desired port, and I would not be asking this question.
Thanks in advance
