Re-assign COM Port Number??

I have a USB device that plugs into my computer system and is assigned to COM8, but the software programs that are designed to interface with this device only allow me to select ports 1 through 6.  Is there a way I can reassign my USB device to a lower port number?  I don't mind disabling certain other devices as long as I can make this device work; then when I am done I can enable whatever I had to disable in the first place, if that turns out to be the case.

Any help would be appreciated!

In Device Manager under Ports (COM & LPT) chose that which you would like to change.
Select the Port Settings tab. Then the advanced button.  You can make any COM port any number you'd like.
