Re: Virtual Port change in #APPC pro #appc
In the future, if there ever does become a conflict with other equipment, with those low port numbers that apcc isAPCC allocates virtual ports at runtime, not at system boot. Devices like a USB to Serial converters usually allocate their virtual COM port at system startup, well before APCC runs. APCC will also never use an existing (true) serial port as a virtual port.
When you run APCC, if it finds a virtual port in use that was previously configured for APCC to use, APCC will choose a different virtual port and reconfigure the driver to use that port. So there should not be a problem if you have all of your devices that use COM ports allocated before starting APCC.
