Available Com Ports RRS feed

  • Question

  • Where does Windows keep track of used and available COM ports? Is it the registry? I specifically need to know for Server 2003 R2. I have a USB to RS-232 converter that is used on our equipment. Sometimes, it gets swapped with a new one. Windows assumes that the ports the first one was using are now taken, so it assigns new COM ports to the new device. I want to be able to tell it what ports to assign it to.
