It seems to be a common problem in getting the activesync in that only comm ports 1-9 are able to be used.
I use widcomm drivers and changing COM port number with these drivers is not possible.
I have read all the posts on Geekzone regarding this.
It seems that the only worksround is to free up the first 9 com ports so that one is available for the widcomm drivers.
DOes anyone have an idiots guide on how to do this as I have done the DEVICE MANAGER unhide inactive routine and deleted as appropriate, but I still seem to have 18 com ports occupied! ANy help would be much appreciated.
