  • COM10 Opens as a file

    Hi

    hComm = FreeFile
    Comm Open COMPORT As #hComm

    This "simple" code works fine up to Com 9 but com 10 and higher
    are opened as a file on disk....

    I was testing under Windows NT4 sp5

    Any suggestions would be welcome.

    Thanks
    Eric Kelderman

    PS
    I use a multi com port card with 8 Com adding to the 2 on
    the computer.
