Features:
  • Two views with COM ports and connection types (BusTypes)

  • COM port numbers change and swap (if started with administrator previleges)
  • USB-Port reset (XP, Win8 and 10)
  • Display of the "Port Parameters" (GetCommState), that's how the last application using this port left it behind and on failure it indicates that the port is in use
  • Display of the "Default Port Parameters" (GetDefaultCommConfig), these are the parameters from the device manager
  • Display of the "Port Properties" (GetCommProperties), these are the capabilities of the COM port hardware, e.g. supported signals and data rates
