in thread Win32::SerialPort v. New computers

Some USB-to-RS232 adapters (Logilink, perhaps others) come with a litte tool that allows setting the COM port number from the Windows-assigned number (typically >4) to lower numbers (down to COM1).

COM1 to COM9 should be no problem for most software that uses the Windows API, COM10 and higher need some obscure syntax to specify the COM port (\\.\COM10, according to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/115831).
