Hi there

Ok i have looked all over the place for some help but i finally have given up. Ok the question is, We have recently updated our computer system and does not have the old serial port for our IRDA reader, so we purchased a usb dongle type which installs fine. The problem is the software which we use you have to choose which comport the irda is on for us to be able to transfer the data from the handheld unit to the computer. Is there any way to assign a com port to the irda as in device manager it only shows under IRDA not under com ports, any help would be great we are racing tomorrow and would really like to get it running again

thank you

... I would of thought software with the usb device would solve that.

... perhaps add a new com port via Add Hardware in control panel ... communications port.
