"[80] Failed to create virtual serial port"

Thu Feb 19, 2009 12:30 am

I am running the samples for serialtools (vb.net version of VPortEvents) and keep getting the same error when the vport is created

I've searched the forum for any hints and have tried all suggestions.

"[80] Failed to create virtual serial port"

I am definitely trying to create an unused port ie 6 - I only have ports 3 & 4 in use on my machine. I've also tried ports 5, 7, 8 and 9 with the same result.

I am using XP SP3 with VS2008.

I have tried the gpsgate workaround to re-install the driver - it says the driver is installed when I run it but I get the same error.

anyone have any ideas what i'm doing wrong?
