Do you see this port in device manager in "Ports" branch? Maybe it have another (sometimes really strange) number.

Yes, i do. And more stranger is that all devices are ok in windows.  there are a program that works in DOS and developed in clipper and works fine, but in windows do not work ok. I can´t open the COM1.

Commented:
Probably you have to configure port with "mode" command. Maybe it's good solution to map COM1 to LPT1 and use new porrt in your app.
Start with command line and "mode /?"

I disable the device com1 and enable again, and it´s running now.
